Abstract

The monsoon fishery of August-September in the creeks, and the winter fishery of October-November in the gulf form the two main prawn-fishing seasons in the Gulf of Kutch. The monsoon fishery is supported by Metapenaeus kutchensis, while the winter fishery, by M. kutchensis, M. hrevicornis and Penaeus indicus. The pattern of distribution of these species indicates that there is a higher abundfuice of M. kutchensis in the Inner gulf and P. indicus and M. brevkornis in the outer gulf.
