Species Profiles. Life Histories and Environmental Requirements of Coastal Fishes and Invertebrates (Pacific Southwest) Crangonid Shrimp
NATIONAL WETLANDS RESEARCH CENTER SLIDELL LA
Pagination or Media Count:
This species profile is one of a series on coastal aquatic organisms. The profiles are designed to provide coastal managers, engineers, and biologists with a brief comprehensive sketch of the biological characteristics and environmental requirements of the species and to describe how populations of the species may be expected to react to environmental changes caused by coastal development. Each profile has sections on taxonomy, life history, ecological role, environmental requirements, and economic importance, if applicable. This report considers three species of crangonid shrimp, commonly called bay shrimp which are important to epifaunal decapod shrimp communities of the Pacific Southwest. They are Crangon franciscorum, sand shrimp, C. nigricauda black shrimp, and C. nigromaculata blue-spotted shrimp. Keywords California coastal regions Estuaries.
