Comments"The tiger shrimp was sighted migrating with the common white shrimp (Litopenaeus setiferus) while wading the channel inlet to Powderhorn Lake at Indianola Marina. The shrimp were being carried in with the incoming tide which is very strong at times of high tides. The sighting was the only one specific shrimp matching the photos on the USGS website of the tiger shrimp. Throughout the night that we were fishing only one was seen."
