The hypomorpibic ovaries in three specimens of Metapenaeus monoceros (Fabricius) obtained from Cochin waters during November 1973, are described. The abnormalities noticed pertain to the relatively undeveleped state of the posterior lobe of the ovary in two specimens, and of the proximal ¾ th region of the anterior lobe in a third one. The probable causes for such abnormal development of the ovary are discussed.
