Length at first maturity / Size / Weight / Age
Maturity: Lm ?  range ? - ? cm Max length : 19.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 356); 21.2000007629395 cm TL (female)
Maximum TL: 16.3 cm (male); 21.2 cm (female). Maximum carapace length: 3.1 cm (male); 3.3 cm (female) (Ref. 8). Vulnerability for synonym Fenneropenaeus penicillatus is 50. Juveniles inhabit mangrove inlets (Ref. 114627). In general, the majority of penaeids are omnivorous or detritus feeders (Ref. 105082). Members of the order Decapoda are mostly gonochoric. Mating behavior: Precopulatory courtship ritual is common (through olfactory and tactile cues); usually indirect sperm transfer (Ref. 833).
