Shimmering Shrimp

Christina Priestner


What is a delicious seafood that lives on the ocean floor? It is one of the two thousand species of shrimp. These sea creatures have a simple or intricate appearance, a delicious diet, and a particularly fast life cycle and reproduction from one to two years of age.


Did you know these majestic underwater creatures inhabit all waters from ocean to lake? Well, a shrimp has it all, a different appearance, a delicious diet (for the shrimp), and an interesting life cycle and reproduction. Shrimp is an animal that is usually only recognized as food, but they have a few surprises.

Think Tank

This is a comic about how shrimp might one day take over the world because of their amazing smash. But I think the fisherman have this one under control.

Go Fish!

In my group for go fish I worked with my best friends Alexa and Lauren. So we were pretty successful, with a total of everything combined was $244.84. Which was under the budget of $250.00 by only $5.16. We chose fish that could adapt to saltwater living because our fish tank is a saltwater fish tank. We needed twenty gallons of water to support the fish in our tank. We chose seahorses, puffer fish, purple dotty backs, peppermint shrimp, fancy guppy, and a yellow tail damsel fish. These fish can adapt to the saltwater tank.

Preheat the oven to 140C. Line a baking sheet with non-stick parchment paper.


Start to blend vinegar, vanilla, and cornflour to a paste. Next whisk the egg whites. Then whisk in the sugar, adding in the paste you already made until a nice meringue is formed.

Spread it out on a 20cm round pan, swirl the knife to make peaks. Scatter nuts(if you like) and bake for about 1 hour.

Take your strawberries and stir in the cassis. Whip it softly, cut each strawberry in half and put them in the cream.

Strawberry Pavlova

Usually this cake is eaten in Australia for dessert. It is creamy and tasty and I haven't tasted it before. But it is tradition to eat this during their national day.
