"Tiger prawns are a large colorful prawn that we catch in drag nets or cast nets. They come into the shallows when we get lots of rain in the wet season. They come into the shallows to feed. Sometimes there are so many you can see a brown spot in the shallows. You can fill a whole bucket of prawns with one drag of the net. We love to cook them on the coals or boil them in water. They are a great food source."
