I have dissected prawn for the first time. Would like your help in identifying some structures .
- This is the dissection of the posterior part of the prawn. What is this blackish structure in the middle ? This structure becomes whitish farther down. Then, it forms a small sac like structure and then becomes thin again. This whole structure appeared just after I cut the exoskeleton. It is directly above the muscles.
I think that this is it's alimentary canal and the black area has digested food in it. The sac like structure might be the rectum.
