Flower Shrimp

Flower Shrimp

The fisheries in Bahrain are entirely artisanal in nature following the prohibition on industrial shrimp trawling activities in 1998. Catches consist of both a wide variety of finfish species, together with the important shrimp fishery as well as the increasingly important portunid crab fishery. The shrimp fishery is traditionally the most important fishery in Bahrain. Over 90 percent of the shrimp catch is of Penaeus Semisulcatus specie also commonly called as Flower Shrimp.
