Abstract

Marine penaeid prawns of the species, Parapenaeopsis stylifera (H. Milne Edwards) kept in tanks in the laboratory have successfutly spawned. The larvae were reared upto Mysis I stage. The eggs have taken an average of 7 hrs for hatching. The larvae passed through five naupliar stages and reached Protozoea stage in 38-40 hrs. Passing through two more protozoeal substages they meta- morphosed into Mysis I stage within 8 days 18 hrs to 9 days 17 hrs. Brief descriptions of various larval stages are given.
