Asian tiger shrimp (Peneaus monodon)
Native to Indo-Pacific, Asian, and Australian waters, Asian tiger shrimp are now found along the Atlantic Bight and Gulf coasts of the United States. Known for their distinctive black stripes, this invasive species has a voracious appetite, feeding on native shrimp, bivalves, crustaceans, and fish.
Scientists are exploring what effect they might have on native ecosystems:
