Red Spot King Prawn (Penaeus longistylus) Photographs and Information



Red Spot King Prawns are grooved prawns, that is they have a pair of parallel grooves running the length of the upper surface of the carapace.

Red Spot King Prawns can be distinguished from Western King Prawns by having a red abdominal spot and blue-red over cream body markings (blue over cream in western king prawns)

In Australian waters, Red Spot King Prawns are common from Shark Bay in Western Australia, along the northern Australian coast to Yeppoon in Queensland.  They are also recorded from Lord Howe Island.

In Western Australia, Red Spot King Prawns are found with sponges, soft corals, coarse sand or shell grit substrates, coral reefs and coral rubble.  On the Queensland east coast they are rarely found more than 30km from coral reef systems.  Through much of Queensland, Red Spot King Prawn juveniles inhabit coral reef lagoons in depths of 1-3 metres, yet in north-eastern Queensland the juveniles inhabit estuaries and reef tops.   Adults inhabit inter-reef channels and adjacent waters in depths fro about 18m to 60m, often on sand-mud substrates.

Red Spot king prawns have an extended spawning period between May and October.   Not much information is available on the prawn's larval form and maximum age.   The Red Spot King Prawn appears to be unusual in that, unlike some other prawns, they do not require estuarine or coastal environments for the successful completion of their life cycle.

Commercial fishing for Red Spot King Prawns is primarily in the eastern Queensland part of its range.  The main fishing area is between about Lucinda and Bowen on the central Queensland coast, over a 20-30 wide strip to the west of the Great Barrier Reef.

Red Spot King Prawns are caught by demersal otter trawlers operating at night.   The main fishing area is open water in depths of 40-60 metres in the vicinity of coral reefs.

How to Purchase the Freshest Prawns or Shrimp - Fresh cooked shrimp are actually cooked on board the vessel of capture the moment they are caught and then refrigerated for maximum freshness before being delivered to the markets which will be normally or hopefully within 24hrs of capture.

About Red Spot King Prawns:

Sizes of Prawns:
Prawns are graded according to the number of prawns per pound (445 grams) or per Kilo (1000gms)

U/10 = under 10 prawns per pound (extra large) (between 16 to 20 prawns to the Kilo)

10/20 = 10 to 20 prawns per pound (medium) (between 22 to 42 prawns to the kilo)

20/30 = 20 to30 prawns per pound (small to medium) (between 44 to 67 prawns to the kilo)

300/500 = 300 to 500 prawns per pound (extra small - shrimps) (between 675 to 1124 prawns to the kilo)

S & B = Soft and broken prawns - these are export 2nds due to slight damage or soft shell due to prawn malting just prior to capture.

Tips:- when comparing prices always compare by asking the count per pound - the lower the count the larger the size. The larger the size the higher the price
