Macrobrachium agwi is a species of freshwater shrimp, first described in 2008, endemic to the Himalaya. It was discovered when a shipment of ornamental prawns, destined for the aquarium trade, was shipped from Cooch Behar, West Bengal, India to Europe. Examination of the shipment showed that one type of shrimp was a new, undescribed species.
