Northern Shrimp (Pandalus borealis)
Research

Northern shrimp stocks are typically assessed using trawl survey estimates of abundance, as well as survey and fishery sampling of size and sex composition.

Other types of shrimp research focus on taxonomy, reproduction, larval development, competition and predation, parasites and diseases, food habits, molting and growth, factors that affect population dynamics, and methods of managing fisheries for sustained yield.
