Subject: Not shrimp here, but...

The shrimp we have in San Francisco bay are diminutive creatures, soft bodied, ghostly grey, and quiet as micethis later probably because they have been fished nearly to oblivion.

But I have had a similar experience with engine noise.

I was at anchorage on the back side of Angel Island and from the cabin heard very clearly the metallic whir of an engine and propeller. I went on deck. It was a pitch black night and from the cockpit I could neither hear the noise nor see any navigation lights indicating a passing vessel in the main channel.

I imagined it to be a submarine, but Navy activity here is now rare, so I have no idea what it really was.
