Abstract

There are many, many hundreds of species of shrimp found in fresh, brackish and sea waters all over the world. Most of these species are rare, or are very small, or are in some other way not usable for human consumption or commerce. Of all the species, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (F.A.O.) lists 342 which are actually or potentially significant commercially. This number includes species used for human consumption, species used for bait, and species considered to have potential commercial value. Together, landings of these shrimp amount to some 1.8 million metric tons (4 billion pounds) in nearly 100 different countries.
