Northern shrimp, Northern Chilim - Pandalus borealis-is widespread in the North of the Russian Far East, comes into the sea of Japan and Peter the Great Bay. Interestingly, this species has a so-called amphiboreal range, except for the North Pacific ocean, it lives in the North Atlantic. Such an area arose as a result of the rupture of the initial continuous area of warm pre-glacial time by the modern ice regime, which was established in the Arctic basin during the last glaciation. It inhabits depths up to 500 m. In the life cycle of protandry, at the age of 2.5–3 years males become females. Valuable commercial species.
Northern shrimp — saltwater crustaceans from the order decapod. In shrimp, like most animals, there is a division by gender — there are male and female. However, our Northern Chilim is special-first he participates in the breeding process as a male, and then the Northern Chilim turns into a female and the rest of life as befits a real shrimp-mom diligently lays eggs, from which then hatches a huge number of small Northern shrimp.
Shrimp in cooking

Not so afraid of the devil (cholesterol), as it is painted
Shrimp do contain cholesterol more than other seafood, but much less than liver, eggs, keta and the well-known fish oil. Moreover, scientists from the University of Rockefeller proved the use of shrimp in the fight against cholesterol. In 1996, they conducted a study and found out how cholesterol behaves in the daily use of shrimp.
During the studies, scientists measured not only total cholesterol, but also the amount and ratio of LDL (bad cholesterol) and HDL (good cholesterol). It was noted that "bad" cholesterol became higher by 7%, and "good" – by 12%. Accordingly, the ratio of "bad / good" cholesterol (atherogenic index) became lower, and the risk of atherosclerosis decreased.
In addition, statistics show that in countries where shrimp are a traditional food, the incidence of cardiovascular disease is much lower than in European countries.
So-eat shrimp for health!
