Muthu, M S and Pillai, N N and George, K V and Lakshmi, S (1981) Growth of the Indian white prawn Penaeus indicus in relation to stocking density. Journal of the Marine Biological Association of India, 23 (1&2). pp. 205-208.
One month old seed of Penaeus indicus were stocked in 4 identical ponds at stocking densities of SJm*, 10/m", 25/m» and 50/ms and after 110 days they had attained a size of 128 mm 108 mm, 88 mm and 64 mm respectively. There was a clear inverse relationship between stocking density and growth Growth was comparatively very fast during the first month and a half and then slowed down considerably in all the ponds. The implications of the observed growth patterns are discussed.
