Abstract

The monthly landings of the different species and the effort expended show wide fluctuations. However, the catch per unit of effort and the mean size of the different speci(« do not show a regular declining trend. It has been found that the successful spawning by the surviving spawners and the subsequent recruitment of younger prawns into the fishable stock greatly influence the fluctuations in the landings. Ecological changes brought out by the physico-chemical distorbaiKes in the envirmunent and their influence on prawn landings are dbcossed.
