***** Monthly Fish Profile*****
Mantis Shrimps, or Stomatopods are marine crustaceans of the order stomatopoda. Some species have specialised calcified “Clubs” which can strike with great power (which makes them unsuitable specimens for aquariums) others have sharp forelimbs used to capture prey. There are more than 450 species worldwide, with almost 150 in Australian waters. They are a by catch of the estuary trawl fishery. Their flesh is not tasty if boiled so it’s best to peel them and then pan fry. This one was the average size of 210mm total length.
DID YOU KNOW?
Mantis Shrimp are the only animals to have Hyperspectral colour vision and are considered to have the most complex eyes in the animal kingdom. They can see ultraviolet, visible and infra-red light and different planes of polarised light. The shape of their eyes allows them to see things with three different parts of the eye at once.
