I've seen them play live several times since, including the Hyde Park reunion gig for Live8 in 2005.“The description of this new species of pistol shrimp was the perfect opportunity to finally give a nod to my favourite band.” Like any self-respecting rock band, pistol shrimps have the ability to generate a huge amount of volume.The rock shrimp (Sicyonia brevirostris) is a deep-water relative of the pink, brown, and white shrimp. Rock shrimp are known for their very tough, hard exoskeleton or shell that at one point prevented widespread marketing until a machine was invented to split the shell.
Some species of pistol shrimp use their sonic weapon to drill burrows into solid basalt rock.
Similar to deep-sea lobster, rock shrimp live, spawn, and are harvested in 120 feet to 240 feet of water.
Harvesting is accomplished with reinforced trawl nets throughout the year.
These foods weren't "discovered" (like early people "discovered" some corn popped if placed near the fire) but noticed.
The earliest hunter-gatherers took advantage of every available food resource.
