Sidestripe shrimp usually live for four years, starting their lives as males and maturing as hermaphrodites: after one or two spawning seasons the males change gender becoming females in their final year of life. These shrimp typically reproduce in the fall with eggs hatching in the spring. Their larvae are very small and free-swimming. Juvenile shrimp feed on plankton, grow quickly and frequently shed their shells through molting. As they grow, they sink to the seafloor which is their adult habitat. They have a delicate, clean flavour with a prominent sweetness.
