Shrimp or Prawn?
There is often confusion regarding the difference between a shrimp and a prawn. In shrimps the side plate of the second segment of the abdomen overlaps the segments in front and behind. In Prawns all the abdominal side plates overlapping tile-like from the front.
Most likely this photo is of a shrimp.
