    Abstract

    The average annual landing of this species at Cochin Fisheries Harbour was 192 tonnes with catch per unit effort of 3.67 kg. Between 1991 and 93 the catch and catch rate increased by 5.33 and 37.97% respectively. As the speckled shrimp is nocturnal, success of its fishery depends on trawling during nights in grounds of 30-45 meters iepth range. The fishing season extends from December to May with peak availability during March -May.
