Oriental River Prawn


Oriental River Prawn (Macrobrachium nipponense)
Tampines, 12th May 2013

There is a thriving population of Oriental River Prawn, a non-native freshwater crustacean, in Tampines Quarry Lake. Several were collected as juveniles and subsequently raised to maturity in captive conditions. This adult survived in an aquarium for some time, but died from unknown causes after being transferred to another tank.
