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 exists in Campeche Bank, Mexico (SAGARPA, 2012). Pink shrimp is caught along with brown and white shrimp in the NW Atlantic.
