Hydrophobicity is a measure of how well a surface repels water. I measured the hydrophobicity of shrimp specimens compared to other hydrophobic surfaces, such as Teflon. A digital microscope helped me capture images of the surfaces repelling the water droplets. The shrimp exoskeleton was not hydrophobic when compared to the Teflon. This may be due to the dependence shrimp have on seawater passing through its carapace. Investigations into the structure of the shrimp may reveal the nature of its hydrophilicity, or water binding property. To get a clear and even more magnified image of the exoskeleton structure a SEM microscope will be used.
