SUMMARY

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Penaeus duorarum

SPECIES NAME(s)

Northern pink shrimp, Pink shrimp, Grooved shrimp

The population structure of the species is not clear but there are indications that the Northern Gulf of Mexico and NW Atlantic distributions may constitute a single contiguous population (McMillen-Jackson & Bert, 2004) that is currently assessed and managed independently in the US region: NW Atlantic (NOAA, 2013b) and in Northern Gulf of Mexico (Hart, 2012). A distinct assessment unit is considered to exist in Campeche Bank (SAGARPA, 2012).
