    Fishing for the ginger prawn (Metapenaeus kutchensis George, George and Rao, 1963), a seasonal fishery, started towards the end of July 2010 in various places such as Madherki, Tikker and Chera of Soorajbari district adjacent to the Little Rann of Kutch in the Gulf of Kutch region of Gujarat.A team of scientists and technical staff of the center made periodic visits to these centers during fishing season and collected hydrographic and fishery data. The fishing season starts towards the end of July every year when the creeks and adjoining areas of the Little Rann of Kutch gets flooded by the south-west monsoon rains and lasts until these places are dried up in October.
