Mystery Shrimp Species Caught in Buras LA
This shrimp was pulled from the water in Buras, Louisiana. We have not been able to identify what species of shrimp this is.
Caught by Louis Bourne in the back levee canal, south of Buras Boat Harbor.
It is not common to find these in the Gulf of Mexico. Of course we have to wonder if this is a possible result of the BP oil disaster. I sure hope not. It has been turned over biologist for further study of it’s DNA.
Any information anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
