Our experienced spotters can help you to discover the diversity of coloration of the Sashimi Shrimp. They are small in size but lots of interesting details are visible once seen in a video or on a photo. Some color combinations are similar to Japanese Sushi (Sake/Salmon with wasabi or Maguro/Tuna with wasabi). So the nickname Sashimi Shrimp was born. The scientific/Latin name is not clear – at least we could not find a reliable source yet. They seem to be part of the Hippolytidae shrimp family. These are one of the favorite critters of our guests, especially underwater macro photographers.
We love macro and super macro photography and especially finding rare and special critters around
our island home. We do our best in identifying all critters on this website correctly; however, we
might make mistakes that can be present on this website.
Please keep in mind that this website is created for scuba divers, underwater photographers, and
everybody interested in marine animals. This website is created and organized from a diver’s and an
underwater photographer’s point of view. That’s why we primarily group animals together in a
meaningful way for divers and underwater photographers.
