    Abstract

    Aquaculture has been an age old practice in several countries and is said to have begun in China. World aquaculture production rose from 5.8 million tonnes to 70.5 million tonnes during 2013. In 2012 farmed crustaceans accounted for 9.7% (6.4 million tonnes) of food fish aquaculture production by volume which includes 3.91 million tonnes from mariculture (FAO, 2014). Several species of penaeid shrimps, brachyuran crabs, spiny and scyllarid lobsters are cultivated in several parts of the world and these organisms also support commercial fishery. Important criteria for the successful cultivation of any organism/species are thorough knowledge of its morphological characters for accurate identification and their biology.
