Penaeus chinensis (Fleshy prawn) (ASM1920278v2)

About Penaeus chinensis

The Chinese white shrimp, oriental shrimp, or fleshy prawn is a species of shrimp. It is cultivated at an industrial level off mainland China. Production was devastated by a series of epidemics in the 1990s and early 2000s. Its wild capture has since recovered and expanded, but it is now farmed at lower levels than previously.
