Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Common total length: 6.0 to 8.0 cm (Ref. 8). This is an oceanic, demersal species found up to 130 meters in depth (Ref. 103831). Occurs in unconsolidated sublittoral sediments (Ref. 105332). Bottom sand or mud and shells (Ref. 8). Also found in seagrass (Ref. 102062). Preyed upon bony fishes (Refs. 34001, 105209, 105210). In general, the majority of penaeids are omnivorous or detritus feeders (Ref. 105082). Mating behavior: Precopulatory courtship ritual is common (through olfactory and tactile cues); usually indirect sperm transfer (Ref. 833). Spawning peaks during summer (Ref. 103558).
