The size structure of the commercially important rose shrimp, Parapenaeus longirostris, was compared between populations in the Sea of Marmara and the Aegean Sea. The analysis was based on data collected during trawl selectivity surveys carried out in November and December 2006. Growth showed no similar pattern, and in additions differences were found in length frequency distribution, sex ratio, and recruitment pattern of the P longirostris populations in these two areas.
