An old street in Tomar called Rua do Camarão

This a small and old street in Tomar and it’s called Rua do Camarão. I’m not sure why this street is called like that as Camarão means shrimp. I know that these crustaceous can be found not only in salt water but also in fresh water, but I’ve never heard of shrimps living in the waters of Nabão River, whose course runs relatively close to this street. Who knows may that happened centuries ago but not in my time.
