Description

This sole shrimp was flopping about on the sea lettuce during the minus tide. It may be Crangon alaskensis (Northern crangon shrimp aka Alaskan bay shrimp aka Salt-and-pepper shrimp), based on information in Andy Lamb's book and online, where I learned they are often found by sandy beaches, like North Beach. Its slender body, spotted body and long, striped antennae are distinctive.
