Camarón café (Spanish)
The genetic structure of the Yellowleg shrimp (Penaeus californiensis) in the Eastern Pacific is not fully understood. (de la Rosa-Vélez et al. 2000) identified an upper Gulf of California population for this species. INAPESCA defined several assessment units for shrimps in the Gulf of California and Pacific coast, among these Upper Gulf of California, Sonora, Sinaloa-Nayarit, and western Baja California Sur including the Bahia Magdalena complex (DOF 2012).
