 Royal Red Shrimp

They are found primarily in the cold, deep waters off the coast of St. Augustine and the Dry Tortugas in the Florida Straits. They prefer a sandy mud or silt ocean bottom, at depths of 820-1550 feet, where the water temperature is a cool 45-55 degrees Fahrenheit. One interesting fact is that this species of Shrimp can be harvested during the day or night, because of the ultra deep-water habitat it lives in. The shrimp are prized for their deep red color and salty taste
