Let's see ... There is Penaeus vannamei (headless, peeled deveined, and tail-on), Penaeus monodon (headless, shell-on, tail-on), Pleoticus muelleri (headless, shell-on, tail-on).
Everything is headless but where is Penaeus japonicus?
The Japanese samurai tiger shrimp ... the one species with the most pronounced and beautiful black tiger stripes.
As stated by Yousef Eltahawy and I quote: “Tiger shrimp: These little fellas are characterized by their stripes and can actually become quite large, but they tend to be farmed and not very sustainable.”
On the contrary, the black tiger prawns are the most sustainably farmed species of penaeids in the Philippines using the extensive to semi-intensive method of prawn farming being farmed in my country without paddlewheels and commercial feed input at an average annual production volume of 45,000 metric tons since time immemorial grown in swampy muddy flooded areas in huge 5 hectares to 10-hectare ponds where intensive farming of vannamei is not practical and with the least carbon footprint in the production track record.
Compared to vannamei shrimp that are farmed here in my country intensively at an average annual production of only 20,000 metric tons in 1/2-hectare to one-hectare ponds at a higher production cost due to fuel and electricity consumption and high commercial feed input demand.
"Tiger shrimp: These little fellas"?
Oh, come on. What a denial. It's the big fella of penaeid farming.
And that is why the black tiger prawn or Penaeus monodon (Fabricius, 1798) is commonly called the Giant Tiger Prawn.
Even in the scientific community ... Penaeus monodon is called Giant Tiger Prawn because it is what it is ... the giant among the farmed penaeids on this planet.

And the posted image was lifted from Jessica Gavin's blog without acknowledgment.
This is plagiarism caught in act.
Disregarding the original work of a master culinary scientist.
Good catch Nelson. I fixed the credit.
I can forgive Jessica Gavin for stating the "little fella thing and the not sustainable thing" referring to the black tiger prawn because she's not into shrimp aquaculture. She doesn't understand fully well.
But when someone, portraying himself as a shrimp aquaculture expert, lifts her statement from a culinary blog, word for word, and posts it on his own site without reviewing and digesting the validity of Jessica Gavin's statement from the point of aquaculture, and without acknowledgment probably thinking that no one can trace anyway, he becomes responsible for it by inheriting the mistake.
Call it double jeopardy on the part of the plagiarist.
Nothing different from the methyl farnesoate case of 2009 in the Old Shrimp List.
From a so-called aquaculture expert, he is trying to portray himself to be in social media then reduced to nothing but a credit grabber, author name eraser, and an information source deleter who does not play a fair game by stealing someone else's work (both original photographs and article narrative content) and posting as though it is his.
That's all there to it.
Just a "little fella" trying to look like a ferocious "giant fella" 🙃
Where is Jessica Gavin in this post?
But this is originally Jessica Gavin's article.
intentionally vanished into nonentity as though she doesn't exist.
But she is still alive living among us on this planet ... right there in Orange City, North Orange County in California, the USA where the California Spot Prawns (Pandalus platyceros) are caught by traps down to a depth of 1,000 feet.
Managed by the California Department of Fish and Game (CDFG)
While the Pink Shrimp (Farfantepenaeus duorarum), Brown Shrimp (Farfantepenaeus aztecus), White Shrimp (Litopenaeus setiferus) are caught in the Gulf of Mexico from Florida to Texas by offshore trawling through a fleet of U.S. Southern Shrimp Alliance shrimpers.

How would you feel if your own original works that you treasure so much are stolen?
That is if you have got your own original works to protect them from being stolen.
You cannot give what you do not have
