The Karikadi is a shrimp variety seen in regions of the Indian Ocean. They can be seen in the waters of Kuwait, Pakistan and Bangladesh. In fact, it has two subspecies and each is found in different zones of the Indian Ocean. Maturity length of the Karikadi is around 9 cm though its maximum length can go up to 14.5 cms.
The age of the Karikadi is around 2 years which is pretty early. In coast and depths, the Karikadi is seen at depths of 90 metres. On the other hand in muddy and sandy substrates the fish can be seen at a depth of 50 metres. Karikadi is omnivorous in temperament and its diet in normal situations includes crustaceans, mud and detritus, vegetable matter, gastropods, bivalves, diatoms, and sand particles
As and when the shrimp matures sexually its feeding intensity also increases. The Karikadi takes less than 15 months to double its population and hence it does not fall under the high-risk category at all. Commercially the Karikadi is nurtured in fisheries and it does not pose any kind of threats to any human.
