    Parapenaeopsis stylifera is a penaeid prawn commercially called as Kiddi prawn and locally known as ‘Jinga’. A large sized P. stylifera was collected from New Ferry Wharf on 29.04.2014 during regular field sampling. The mechanized shrimp trawler which had landed the specimen was fishing in 40 - 60 m depths off Gujarat coast. It landed about 50 - 60 kg P. stylifera along with the catches of other penaeid prawns such as Metapenaeus affinis, M. monoceros and Solenocera crassicornis. The particular specimen was a female measuring 158 mm in total length and weighing 27.6 grams.
