Macrobrachium macrobrachion morphology and abundance in Luubara creek, of Ogoni Land, in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria was studied for a period of two years (January, 2006 to December, 2007). It was not different from other Macrobrachium species. The body is divided into three main divisions: the head, thorax and abdomen. The head and thorax are joined to form a cephalothorax, containing the mandibles, flagella, rostrum and the eyes containing a stalk containing five pairs of walking legs…

Abundance and ecologic distribution of the shrimp Rimapenaeus constrictus (Crustacea: Penaeidae) on the northern coast of São Paulo State, Brazil
Sediment type and temperature are the most important variables affecting the spatial and seasonal distribution of this species, and a more diversified sediment at UBM and UBA apparently favours the establishment of this shrimp in the region.
