MEDITS is the fishery research project launched in 1993 with the aim to estimate the state of demersal resources in the Mediterranean. Montenegro was included into this project in 2007. Research was carried out in July 2008 at depths ranging from 10 to 800 m. Among thirty referent, target species were four Decapoda species, and one of them was a deep-water pink shrimp Parapenaeus longirostris (Lucas, 1846). The Crustacea Decapoda group contributed for 8.33% in abundance, and the 2.48% in biomass to the total catch. Deep-water pink shrimp was the most abundant and had the highest biomass value in the 200-500 m stratum.
