Prawn is a marine crustacean with an exoskeleton and ten legs, resembling a large shrimp. The consumption of prawns offers numerous health benefits as they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and are known to improve cardiovascular circulation. On account of this, they are widely caught and farmed commercially and are easily available worldwide. This has also made prawns an important part of various cuisines and one of the most traded seafood species. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Prawn Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022", the global prawn market reached a volume of nearly 5 Million Tons in 2016.
