Freshwater prawns sold at street market in Gairkata (India)

I believe those are freshwater prawns (i.­e.­ river shrimps).­ There are also a few insects that crawled in the mix, but insects are edible too, so no problem!

If you can identify the exact species, please post a Comment!

I just took a break from my long motorcycle journey and strolled around this lively and colorful street market in a small town called Gairkata, in West Bengal.­
