    Abstract

India has 2.02 million sq.km exclusive economic zone area and 0.53 million sq.km continental shelf area, a potential source for marine fisheries.The rich continental shelf area, a good habitat for demmersal fishes as well as crustaceans such has penaeid prawns , non-penaeid prawns, crabs, lobsters and stomatopods. Mechanised trawler is the main gear operated in the continental area targeting crustacean resources, Though trawl net is operated for penaeid prawn, non penaeid prawns, crabs and stomatopods will be formed as by catch because all these resources habituate in the same fishing ground.
