    Abstract

    The dynamic environment of the estuaries and adjoining backwaters plays a vital role in the fishery of the coastal areas in general and the prawn fishery in particular. Because of the great demand for prawns in the fish trade circle and in view of the limitations in the exploitation of natural resource, there has been global awakening, in recent years, to find out ways and means for augmenting prawn production through coastal aquaculture, one of the essential inputs required for successful prawn culture is the availability and the timely supply of prawn seed for stocking in the fields. In nature# larvae# postlarvae and juveniles of different species of prawns occur throughout the year in the inshore waters and in the estuaries and backwaters. However, their abundance varies from place to place and with season depending on the spawning intensity, survival of eggs and larvae, spawning season and the ecological variations.
