    Abstract

    The Indian white prawn, Penaeus Indicus is the next preferred species to Penaeus monodon for shrimp farming In South East Asia . The availability of quality spawners or gravid is a prerequisite for the rapid expansion of hatcheries to meet the quality seed demand. The total estimated area under shrimp cultivation is about 1,40,000 ha during 1998. According to an estimate the distribution of cultivable area under extensive (98,000 ha), modi-fied extensive (28,000 ha), and semi - intensive (14,000 ha) farming operations is 70%, 20% and 10% respectively. The estimated seed requirements will be reach is around 19 billion by 2,000 AD. Availability of seed from nature is seasonal, location specific and of a mixed quality, hence to ensure a steady supply of pure quality seed in large quantities, hatchery production under controlled conditions is the only alternative.
