    Abstract

    The mud crab Scylla serrata Is the largest among edible crabs of India. Constituting a traditional fishery of sustenance level in the country, this crab has assumed considerable importance In recent years on account of Its growing popularity as a gourmet's favourite. It is also a good export commodity. At present the crab is underexploited in our waters and the catches could be increased many fold by improved devices and techniques of capture. In view of its euryhaline nature and many other favourable factors it Is also considered as a candidate species for coastal aquaculture. Realising the potentialities for Its culture, attempts are being made in many countries of the Indo-Pacific for commercial culture and propagation of this species.
