The distribution of the White shrimp (Litopenaeus setiferus) appears to be discontinuous. It occurs along the Atlantic Coast of the United States from Fire Island (New York) south to central Florida and along the north coast of the Gulf of Mexico and the northeastern coast of Mexico (with a center of abundance in Louisiana), continuing southward to Campeche, Mexico (with another center of abundance in northeast Tabasco and the adjacent waters of Campeche). In addition to the large distributional discontinuity around southern Florida and the west side of the Florida Peninsula, this species is patchily distributed within its range on a smaller scale, possibly as a result of local variation in salinity, temperature, substrate, food, or cover.
