    Abstract

    The overall production of marine crabs in India during 1975-2020 was around 1.61 million tonnes, accounting an average of 9.6% in the total crustacean landings. The overall trend of the fishery indicated an increase at the national level, recording a maximum landing of 57354 tonnes (t) during 2018 and the lowest record of 14202 t during 1978. Bulk of the estimated landings (59%) were from Tamil Nadu and Gujarat with the three portunid crabs Portunus sanguinolentus, Portunus pelagicus and Charybdis feriata dominating in the fishery during 2007-2020.
