One of the most appreciated treasures found in the Mediterranean Sea

The red shrimps are of the species Aristeus antennatus and usually measure from 10 to 18 centimetres in length, the genus of these can be distinguished according to the size of their shell. Although they appear almost transparent on the surface, their colour is red with a bluish tone on the shell.

This crustacean is found and weighed in the Mediterranean, usually between 1,000 and 1,500 meters deep. One of the best in our area is known is the Palamós.

The decrease in catches, coupled with strong demand, means that prices have reached exorbitant prices.
