What ever the heck these things are called, you can be sure they have a rich full flavor that is superior to prawns or shrimp.
Critter from the deep. Not sure what this creature is called, but we caught in our Prawn trap at depths of over 120 meters (400 feet). They appear to be closely related to lobsters based on the body shape, but sport some pretty long legs and pincers.
