SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Pandalus borealis

SPECIES NAME(s)

Northern prawn, northern shrimp

Separate stocks of Northern prawn (P. borealis) have not been clearly defined and may represent a single metapopulation within the Northwest Atlantic. However, there are some differences that provide basis for delineating assessment and management units into Shrimp Fishery Areas (SFAs). This profile corresponds to the Nunavut Eastern assessment unit, within SFAs 2. Besides ten other assessment units in Canadian waters, three other assessment units are considered in the NW Atlantic: Northern prawn – Western Greenland, Northern prawn – Flemish Cap and Northern prawn – Gulf of Maine.
