Habitat Choice of Benthic Shrimps




Field investigations on the shallow-water shrimps of the Gullmar Fjord area, Swedish west coast and various coastal localities of the Faroe Islands have been made by selective sampling among different algal habitats using SCUBA-diving. The different species of shallow-water shrimp in the algal zone are found to utilize different algal species/communities as habitat. The shrimps found among algae do not normally migrate seasonally in contrast to those living on sand, mud or Zostera. The selectivity towards a special dominating algal habitat in these shrimps is higher at the Faroes than in the Gullmar Fjord area.
