Trawl is the major gear that catch shrimps, besides the minitrawl are prevelant along Kerala coast, thalluvalai along Tamil Nadu and trammel net along Vizhinjam-Manakudy coast. Parapenaeopsis stylifera, Metapenaeus dobsoni, Metapenaeus monoceros, Fenneropenaeus indicus are the major species landed along the south-west coast. Along the south-east coast, Penaeus semisulcatus dominate the fishery in Gulf of Mannar and Palk Bay and M. dobsoni supports commercial fishery along the Chennai coast with 15-16 other species including Metapenaeopsis spp. and Trachypenaeus spp. M. monoceros is the dominant species along the Andhra coast. Along the Malabar Coast M. dobsoni, F. indicus and P. stylifera are the important species in the fishery. In the inshore waters of Cochin M. dobsoni is dominant followed by P. stylifera. P. monodon is the largest of the inshore shrimps (maximum recorded size 350 mm). Fenneropenaeus indicus, F. pencillatus as well as P. semisulcatus also grow to large size.
