Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

The Oregon pink shrimp fishery of this species has been certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (http://www.msc.org/) as well-managed and sustainable (http://www.msc.org/html/content_1433.htm). Found on green mud or mixed mud and sand bottoms. Can tolerate bottom water salinities ranging from 28.69-34.64 parts per thousand. Males are found in shallower areas (commonly 75-128 m) than females during first 6 months of the year and there is mixing during the remaining half of the year (Ref. 82469). Spawning period peaks in December (Ref. 82649) and lasts for 4.5 months, which begins in the last half of November and ovigerous stage is still observed until April (Ref. 82652).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Species is protandric hermaphrodites. Only one brood is produced every year (Ref. 82649). It matures first as a male at approximately 18 months and sex change occurs the following year where they spend the rest of their lives as females. Spawning began early in November. Ovigerous females lasted from late November to early April, eggs hatched in late March and early April (Ref. 85262).
