About this book

Language: English

The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute realised the importance of crustaceans as an exportable resource and started concentrating on prawn fisheries resemch and development since the 1960s. The Institute published Bulletin 14 entitled Prawn Fisheries of India in 1969 which brought to light the complete information on taxonomy, biology and fisheries of the commercial species of prawns in general and penaeid prawns in particular. Since then many studies have been conducted on various aspects of fisheries during the last 40 years.

The Institute realising the need to update the infomation on prawn fisheries is timely bringing out this critical information as the Handbook of Marine Prawns of India. The book covers almost all the aspects of capture fisheries of prawns contributed by present and former scientists of the Institute. Authors have taken care to include all the information about the biological aspects of the species concerned. Wherever necessary results obtained in the laboratory culture experiments were also recorded in addition to the studies made on wild stocks. Importance was given to highlight the population dynamics and stock assessment to design proper management measures.
