Ask the Aquarium: What do shrimp eat?

Ask the Aquarium: What do shrimp eat?

PINE KNOLL SHORES, NC July 23, 2014 Q. What do shrimp eat? A. Shrimp are omnivores and scavengers, meaning they eat most anything. Like lobsters, crayfish and crabs, shrimp are crustaceans with segmented bodies, jointed legs, eyes on stalks and hard exteriors. All crustaceans must molt to grow, and some, like shrimp, even eat their discarded calcium- rich shell. There are many species of shrimp. Some live thousands of feet under the ocean on thermal vents. Others, like the ones we’re more familiar with, live in waters from low tide to about 300 feet deep. Along the East Coast, pink, brown and white shrimp are harvested and sold commercially. These familiar varieties belong to the Penaeidae family. A shrimp’s body […]
