The ICES Working Group on Crangon fisheries and life history (WGCRAN) examines the various interactions of the brown shrimp to better understand the species.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The priority of WGCRAN is to understand the interactions between the brown shrimp population and fishing effort, and between the shrimps and the environment and ecosystem. In the future this work will lead to better knowledge of the stock status, allowing for sound advice for sustainable management of the population.

Brown shrimp is among the top three species caught in the North Sea with respect to landings. It is a major prey item for cod and whiting, and is itself an important predator of organisms in intertidal areas. The species is assumed to control plaice and mussel recruitment.​
