Northern shrimp are crustaceans with a hard exoskeleton. Their colour ranges from a light to a reddish-pink. They have a muscular body with four feeding legs and six walking legs, and a tail with attached pleopods (fins) that enables them to swim and escape danger quickly. Northern shrimp can grow to a length of about 15 centimetres, though they average about half this, and they are known to live for more than eight years in some areas.
