Report sightings of this nonnative shrimp to the Fish Kill Hotline.
A shrimper collected this tiger prawn (Penaeus monodon)
in the Indian River Lagoon. This nonnative shrimp has been
accidentally introduced to Florida waters by aquaculture
facilities. Little is known about the potential impact of tiger
prawns on the state's environment, so the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission is asking that such finds be reported to
the toll-free statewide Fish Kill Hotline: 800-636-0511.
