The name "ghost shrimp" applies to an entire genus name 'Palamonetes'. There are both brackish and fresh water species. I do believe that ghost shrimp can survive small amounts of salinity but if you are finding clear shrimp in blatantly brakish water, I do not think they are the common ghost shrimp you can buy at Coral Fish. What were you planning on using them for? Bait?
