Rockpool Shrimp

Seagrass Beds

The rock shrimp lives well hidden in thick seagrass and algae beds along our coasts. Feeding largely as a herbivore during spring and summer, it preys on small crustaceans in the autumn. Well-camouflaged, the shrimps are mainly active at night to avoid falling prey themselves to larger predators. Unlike the better-known brown shrimp, this Baltic Sea species is not part of our human diet.
