Many think the difference between shrimp and prawns is the size with prawns just big shrimps. I remember reading somewhere that (could be the reverse) that prawns are freshwater while shrimps live in saltwater or brakish water. I also notice prawns have claws while shrimps do not, but this may just be species dependent. What is the scientific difference(s) between shrimp and prawn? Thanks in advance. Jim
