…is a species of burrowing shrimp endemic to the Pacific coast of North America. Like most burrowing shrimp the bay ghost shrimp constructs and lives in extensive burrow systems, these large systems are often home to a slew of other different animals. The large tunnels made by the bay ghost shrimp have become a problem in oyster production as they can mess up oyster farms and oyster farmers deem them as pests. Bay ghost shrimp are simple deposit feeders and despite their large claws feed mostly on detritus. Males have one claw that is bigger than the other which like in fiddler crabs is thought to serve a function in mating.
