Taxon Notes:This code replaces previous (interim) CAAB code 00 701901 (FISHLIST 701901). FAO code PBA.
Scientific Name Notes:PĂ©rez Farfante & Kensley (1997) revised the genus Penaeus, splitting it into several genera, the status of which since have been subject to considerable controversy. Davie (2002) regarded these as of subgeneric status only. Recent genetic work by Ma et al (2011) has shown that these groups are closely related and do not currently warrant separation from Penaeus, which we follow here. Three names for this species (Penaeus merguiensis, Penaeus (Fenneropenaeus) merguinensis and Fenneropenaeus merguiensis) will still be encountered in the literature.
