For these products, vannamei prawns are used. Vannamei prawns are originally from Central and South America. They largely replaced native Penaeus monodon in Asia as the most farmed shrimp. They are more resistant to disease and there are more harvests in a year. Vannamei prawns live in marine habitats.
