The so-called supergiant a type of amphipod - was discovered more than four miles below the surface in waters north of New Zealand. Most amphipods are usually 0.8in-1.2in long. But the new specimen, found by a team from the University of Aberdeen, was ten times the size.

Now that's a shrimp!
Well this finally puts paid to one of the most annoying food scams in Italian Restaurant History: Shrimp "Scampi."
Shrimp is shrimp and Scampi is PRAWNS
Start sautéeing the real thing ... or else. A 1K Scampo, white wine, olive oil or butter, dill, fennel, garlic, dry white wine or sherry, bit'o'lemon, chopped parsley. High heat, but do DO NOT overcook.
Repeat as necessary. How about a nice Meursault with that? BTW, best place in the world to have prawns ain't Italy. It's an Italian restaurant in Dublin!

What environment grew them that big? Can aquaculture duplicate that environment? What would duplicating that environment cost? Would it be economically viable?
