    Scalloped spiny lobster, Panulirus homarus (Linnaeus, 1758) is a commonly available and commercially important spiny lobster species along Gulf of Mannar, on the southeast coast of India. Specimens caught in the bottom set gillnet fishery were collected from Manapad fish landing centre, Thoothukudi District and after 30 days of holding period, a lobster (body length 145 mm; weight 98 g) with anomalies in the carapace and right antenna was recorded. The lobster maintained along with other healthy lobsters and fed ad libitum with pellet diet(Protein 40% and Lipid 8%) showed normal biological activity including feeding until it succumbed after 28 days of observation period.
