About Deep-sea Prawn Edit

The deep-sea prawn or Pandalus borealis is a boreal species, which can be found in European waters. The species exhibits protandric hermaphroditism the young are males but later became females. These fishes are an additional form of anglerfish, with a moustache-like small lure on the underside of their snout. They are flattened and covered in sharp hard scales, this armoire giving them protection against predators. The lure is strange in that it does not glow, an extraordinary feature in the dark deep sea. It is filamentous and might be used to make tiny vibrations to attract prey. These fishes are closely related to the coffin fishes and hand fishes. Deep-sea prawn walks along the seafloor on their little pelvic fins like stumpy short legs. Most of the deep-sea prawns split some frequent features such as, they are deep red, which looks black in low light levels, their exoskeleton is thin and elastic and they have minuscule dark red light organs in scattered appearance along their legs. Their flesh is full of oil that helps make them more buoyant, as does the thin exoskeleton. The majority of species lives closes to the seafloor and feed on small crustaceans such as copepods as well as zooplantkon.
