    Mumbai Research Centre fabricated small G. I. cage frame locally with four barrels for buoyancy. Inner diameter of the cage frame was 3 m whereas outer diameter was 4 m and nets were designed in conical to provide more space at the bottom for lobster to rest. Cages were moored in the open sea by means of two grapnel anchors. 200 juvenile lobsters collected from Versova landing centers were stocked in the cage.A total of 158 lobsters were recovered from the cage after four months rearing (average wet wt. 155 gm). Lobsters were sold to buyers at the rate of ` 840 per Kg after harvesting.
