  Freshwater Crab Biology
True freshwater crabs spend their entire lives in fresh water and it is a shared defining characteristic to be able to complete their entire life cycle independently of sea water.
In contrast, the newly laid eggs of freshwater crabs are much larger (about 1 mm in diameter), increase to between 3 and 5 mm in diameter as they develop, and remain attached to the pleopods of the female until hatching.
Freshwater crabs were originally known as river crabs, and were given family names such as Thelphusidae and Potamonidae, the latter name being derived from the Greek word root ‘Potamon’ meaning ‘river’;.

 Freshwater Prawn - Biology
Although freshwater prawns require brackish water in the initial stages, most of their lifecycle is spent in turbid, riverine systems.
Freshwater prawns have a hard outer shell that must be shed regularly in order to grow.
Although larvae can survive for 48 hours in freshwater, they must be transferred to brackish water (9 to 19 parts per thousand) for optimum survival.

Likewise, freshwater biology is the study of any aspect of the biology of freshwater organisms.
The best preparation for someone interested in a career in marine or freshwater biology is a broad education that includes coursework in animal and plant biology, cell and molecular biology, genetics, organic chemistry, physics, calculus, and statistics.
Many marine and freshwater biologists teach at colleges and universities located a considerable distance from the body of water where they conduct their research; they often spend the academic year at their home institution, then spend a portion of the summer at a field station where they carry out their research.
