Distribution

Crangon MarLIN The Marine Life Information Network Brown shrimp Crangon

Crangon species are found exclusively in the Northern Hemisphere, with most of the species occurring in the northern Pacific Ocean. C. septemspinosa is the only species in the genus to occur in the north-western Atlantic Ocean, while in the north-eastern Atlantic, C. crangon and C. allmani occur. With the exception of the important commercial species C. crangon, however, the distributions of Crangon species are poorly characterised. The greater number of species in the Pacific Ocean is thought to indicate that the genus originated in the Pacific.

Species

Crangon contains the following extant species:

A further two species are known from the fossil record.
