Captive breeding / propagation
The offspring of Lysmata bahia are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Lysmata bahia, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Lysmata bahia, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
