The Southern Brown Shrimp, Farfantepenaeus subtilis (Pérez Farfante, 1967) (Decapoda: Penaeidae), a new migrant in the Mediterranean Sea

July 19, 2013

Penaeid schrips are important resources for worldwide fisheris and aquaculture (Sunden & Davis, 1991). They inhabit shallow and inshore tropical and subtropical waters, and support important fisheries in near-equatorial regions around the world (Dall, Hill, Rothlisberg, & Sharple, 1990). Some studis have documented their biology and their relevance for fisheries in the Mediterranean Sea.

In the Southwest Atlantic, Frafantepenaus species are among the most important commercially exploites species, and include Farfantepenaus brasiliensis (Latreille, 1817), Farfanepaneus paulensis (Pérez Farfante 1967), F. subtilis (Pérez Farfante, 1967) and Penaus schmitti (Burkenroad, 1936).
