crevette d'eau douce, crevette de creeks (macrobachium)


Explanation:

River Prawns
Also known as “school” or “harbour” prawns, these are small, sweet, flavoursome prawns, often cooked and eaten whole.

School or river prawns are found in estuarine and coastal waters along the east coast of Australia, from Tin Can Bay in Queensland to Corner Inlet in Victoria. The younger prawns are able to tolerate relatively fresh water while adults are predominantly found in ocean waters, but may occur in estuaries. School prawns live in depths of between 1 and 55 metres and grow to a total length of 13 – 16cm. About 90 % of the prawns taken by anglers are king prawns (Penaeus plebejus), with the remainder of the catch being school prawns.

La crevette de creeks (Macrobrachium) que l'on trouve dans presque tous les cours d'eau de la brousse est particulièrement délicieuse. Elle pourrait être menacée par l'introduction récente d'écrevisses d'Australie. Dans les estuaires on trouve aussi une petite crevette particulièrement goûteuse et abondante à certaines saisons.

Explanation:
Sorry can't help with the French, but this could help arrive at a suitable translation. Again it's probably best to keep the English and use the French equivalent in ().

River Prawns
Also known as “school” or “harbour” prawns, these are small, sweet, flavoursome prawns, often cooked and eaten whole.

School or river prawns are found in estuarine and coastal waters along the east coast of Australia, from Tin Can Bay in Queensland to Corner Inlet in Victoria. The younger prawns are able to tolerate relatively fresh water while adults are predominantly found in ocean waters, but may occur in estuaries. School prawns live in depths of between 1 and 55 metres and grow to a total length of 13 – 16cm. About 90 % of the prawns taken by anglers are king prawns (Penaeus plebejus), with the remainder of the catch being school prawns. King prawns have a cream to yellow body with dark brown ridges, and possess a straight rostrum with one tooth on the lower surface. School prawns are translucent with irregular brown or green spots and brown antennae, and have a rostrum with a smooth lower surface.
