Ivan they don't taste exactly the same as Banana's, mainly because of the saltwater and freshwater thing, I also doubt they would crap enough to keep your system going, unless you have hundreds, but I also imagine they would be similar to yabbies or koonacs which can be muddy tasting direct from the dam or river (as are trout, river trout can taste down right horrible when the get the muddy river taste, but tank ones are perfect) Dagz will have to stop teasing me and just get bout their :lol:

Spoke to a mate about them Grunta, we doubt they would survive in Perth or here, just too cold, same as Barra would only be a few months of the year, but you can always try and prove us wrong

Nocky ,, we are talking Rosenbergii ???
If your going to breed them how is your access to ocean water?? They simply do NOT breed in river ( fresh) water.
In Thailand they are bred to a cm or so by the governemnt , huge water trucks ship fresh sea water up to the hatcheries.

Dagz ,, with the above complications and the fact of their complex initial morphs ,, for a bit of fish food you would be far better of with yabby/red-claw or even a normal type prawn.

was thinking about trying to keep some breeders in an aquarium through the winter and if lucky enough to breed them it might be posable to grow some out through the summer.
I dont handle this cold weather that well so i know any northen species wont eather. brrrr.


but I am hopeing you come through Nocky, I will be waiting in line when you start breeding the ones your waiting for.

I am wishing you lots of luck!

the fisheries report on page 4 of this thread makes it sound quite easy to bread M, rosenbergii and the amount of larvae you can get from just 1 female at around 15 cm long would sugest that if you had 4 or 5 of these you would end up with more than enough for your self and some, salt / brackish water is only needed for a short period? grow out is in fresh water,

M. Australiense... like AquaBlue stocks and sells.... are not M. Rosenbergii.... and don't grow to anywhere near the same size... or have similar breeding patterns AFAIK...

Well somehow the thread went from american prawn to aussie shrimp and mostly been talking M.Australiense and they look quite large from the live fish pics, they do eat fish in aquariums as well,
Rupe got onto neil about them and has had a bad year for Australiense so NA, but much cheaper than the $8 ea that the other mob want
