    Abstract

    Crustaceans are one of the most valuable resources in the marine fishery in India and contributed an overall average of 14.9 % to the total landings during 1996-2019. Marine commercial crustacean resources mainly comprised of penaeid prawns, non-penaeid prawns, crabs, lobsters and stomatopods. Many species are exploited along the east and west coasts of India, mainly in trawls, seines and gill nets. The state of Gujarat was leading in overall Crustacean production contributing 30.2% of all India landings, followed by States of Maharashtra (22.5%) and Kerala (12.9%). The overall trend of the fishery (1981-2020) showed increase at national level, recording a maximum landing of 532851 tonnes during 2011 and the lowest, 192324 tonnes during 1981 with an overall average of 390063 tonnes. Resource-wise trend also, showed increase except for lobsters and stomatopods.
