Also going by the name Arabian Red Shrimp this variety of prawns is mostly found in the Indian Ocean. It can mostly be found in extreme depths of around 270-1086 metres. The maximum length that the Red Shrimp achieves is around 15 centimetres though there is no clue about its average height or any other important detail.
The common length of the male species of red shrimp is 11 centimetre while that of his female counterpart is 14 centimetre. Members of this species of prawns are considered to be gonochoric by nature. In order to mate they indulge in a precopulatory courtship ritual. After the ritual is over an indirect transfer of sperm happens from the male to the female.
Overall there is no such indication that the red shrimp is dangerous or is moving on the path to extinction. The fact that it is mostly found in the Indian Ocean strengthens the belief that it might soon become rare. However, because they are found in fewer numbers the price of one piece tends to be very high. The taste of the red shrimp is good and hence many people long to purchase them for consumption.
