    Modern aquaculture is a new science and industry although traditional in origin. In the past fifteen years aquaculture production shows a steady increase from 5 million m etric tonnes (1973) to 14.5 million metric tonnes (1988). In future an increase in the population coupled with an increase in percapita consumption will definitely culminate in the intensified effort to increase aquaculture production. In this context prawns are very important as a candidate species for culture and foreign exchange earner for a developing country like India. In order to achieve a reliable mechanism for production in future, a thorough understanding of the cultured animal is necessary. In prawns the most important event occurring through out its life cycle is moulting, which is a mechanism for growth. Prawns like most other crustaceans are ensheathed in a thick outer covering called exoskeleton. The presence of this rigid exoskeleton limits the growth of this animal, which is solved by the periodic shedding of the exoskeleton followed by the secretion of new ones.
