Northern 

shrimp 

Pandalus borealis / Crevette nordique / Eismeergarnele / Gamberetto boreale / Креветка северная / 野生北极甜虾 / 甘エビ

product

The species lives in waters with a temperature of 2-14°C (may occasionally occur in areas below 0°C), at depths of 10-500 m, predominately on soft muddy substrates. Due to cold surroundings Northern shrimp grows slowly. Females can reach a length of 180 mm, while males’ length does not exceed 120 mm.  As a hermaphrodite, Northern shrimp starts out a male but once mature (at an age of around 4 to 7 years old) they change sex and complete their life cycle as a female.
