What do shrimp eat?

There are over 2000 species of shrimp in the world. Some are carnivorous, some herbivorous, some omnivorous, and some are scavengers. Exact diet varies between species.

With thousands of shrimp species, many with different life cycles, many living in different parts of the world in dramatically different ecosystems, shrimp are opportunistic omnivores eating both plants and animals (dead and alive) which are nearest and easiest to grab and ingest.

Larvae shrimp consume whatever they drift with, namely plankton. Plankton may consist of algae, bacteria, and single cell plants or animals and detritus.

Many species migrate to shallow and brackish waters looking for food on the bottom. They eat plant detritus, worms, decaying animal parts such as clams, fish and snails. Many species are cannibalistic.

Farmed shrimp: they consume plant detritus, worms, decaying animal parts such as clams, fish and snails like their wild counterparts. With normal bottom surface movement shrimp stir up the bottom silt promoting the growth of algae. Some species are cannibalistic and are grown in less dense ponds.

By far, most food is introduced as fish food pellets or brine shrimp and fed at prescribed amounts per weight of growing shrimp. The bulk of farmed shrimp are from the Pacific Rim.

What happens if you eat a shrimp shell?

Then it's ok! Don't worry.

Then you digest it. Don't worry, a single shell isn't going to hurt you. -Original Answer

Actually, that is partially correct.

It won't hurt you at all, in fact it is beneficial! The shell is made up of Chitin, is an organic fiber. It helps immensely in healing wounds, it is anti fungal & anti bacterial, and it also helps block fat. If you throw away the shell, you're throwing away something that your body uses daily (and most people lack fiber in their diet!)

How long can you refrigerate uncooked shrimp?

ANSWER:Unless frozen, shrimp breaks down rather rapidly. If you peel and de-vein, and soak in salted water, you can keep shrimp in a 34.5 degree refrigerator for up to 4 days. After that the shrimp will spoil. Fresh shrimp and fresh seafood should have no odor when purchased fresh and the eyes should be clear and not clouded.

What is a prawn?

Most American call a big shrimp a prawn and enjoy eating them deep fried, and covered in batter like coconut prawns. The truth is that in all other English speaking parts of the world, they are all called prawns no matter what the size. As long as we are adding culinary preferences, Thai people like to barbecue them and eat the whole thing, including the head. Actually they chew up the heads and spit out the shells and gills.

Answer

Prawns are shrimp-like crustaceans, belonging to the sub-order Dendrobranchiata. Prawns are distinguished from shrimp by the gill structure which is branching in prawns. In various forms of English, the name 'prawn' is often applied to shrimp as well, generally the larger species are reffered to as prawns.

-A shrimp generally originates from saltwater and a prawn lives in fresh water. In some American grocery stores they sometimes call a large shrimp with the head attached a prawn but they are not. Prawns and shrimp are different
