This giant tiger prawn photo comes from the UK and Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium. It was caught by a Cornish fishing boat and may be a rogue jumbo prawn from a French shrimp fishery which grew up in the English Channel. Blue Reef's David Waines said: "We understand that virtually all of those have been found since the 1980s and experts believe they are escapees from shrimp fisheries off the coast of France."
