Hokkai shrimp is only caught in Lake Saroma
and Lake Notori (Okhotsk area) and the bay of Notsuke (Nemuro
area) in Hokkaido.
It has yellow or black stripes on a greenish brown shell.
However, when it is boiled, it becomes bright red. Its meat
is rich and sweet, and its flavor is delicious. Since the
fishing season is short (July to August) and considering catch
limitations due to resource preservation, it is impossible
to eat out of season. It is very popular during summer.
