Photo-orientation capabilities of the pink shrimp were examined with a Y-maze technique and calibrated optical equipment. Over 500 individuals were tested for their preferential responses to various intensities and wavelengths of light and to darkness. They showed significantly more responses toward light than toward darkness. They also showed significantly more responses toward the higher intensities and longer wavelengths than toward the lower intensities and shorter wavelengths that were presented to them.
