Tiger Prawn

Tiger Prawns are pale brown to bluey green with distinct grey, blue or black stripes; Black Tiger Prawns are the most common aquaculture Prawn in Australia.

Brown and Grooved are available wild-caught, while Black and Kuruma are almost exclusively farmed, though Black and Brown are both found around the northern coast of Australia from central NSW to Shark Bay, WA, and Grooved are found from Rockhampton to Augustine, WA.

Tiger Prawns are both marine and estuarine, preferring sandy and muddy bottoms in coastal waters usually less than 30m deep, but found at up to 150m. Juveniles are found in estuaries among seagrass and mangroves.

Black and Kuruma are farmed mostly between Cooktown and Brisbane, Queensland, with some in NSW and NT. Brown are mainly trawled off NT and Queensland, with some off NSW, and Grooved are trawled off NT and Queensland (as far south as Rockhampton), plus in the Timor Sea off WA.
