patter In the United States, according to the 1911 Encyclopædia Britannica, the word “prawn” usually indicates a freshwater shrimp or prawn.

In Middle English, the word “prawn” is recorded as "prayne" or "prane"; comparable word can be found in any other language.

Shrimp are decapods or, scientifically,  Decapoda, which literally means "ten footed".. This is an order of crustaceans within the class Malacostraca, and also includes  groups, such as crayfish, crabs, lobsters,  and prawns.

Shrimp are Detritivores which is the name given to animals and plants that consume detritus (decomposing organic material). In this role shrimp contribute to decomposition and the recycling of organic nutrients where they live.
