Abstract

Crambionella annandalei is a rhizostomatid jellyfish (class Scyphozoa) and locally known as Munthakaya (Fig.1). The swarms of this species was considered a menace to coastal fisheries as it caused damaged to fishing nets and hindered the fishing operations. However, the species is emerging as a targeted fishery resource along the coast of Andhra Pradesh due to increased demands of processed oral arms of jellyfish in south-east Asian countries and delivers additional income to coastal fisher folk involved in this activity.
