Project Description

This stout shrimp (Heptacarpus brevirostris) with a white anterior was noticed at a dive site I really enjoy called Oak Leaf – Nanoose Bay, Vancouver Island.  Stout shrimp can be seen in a wide variety of colours and patterns, blending well into their surroundings.  These shrimp grow to 2.4 inches (6.2 cm) long, with a range from northern Alaska to southern California.
