Abstract

The Japanese blunthorn lobster, Palinustus waguensis was landed at Chennai's trawl landing centre by deep sea trawlers operating along the Tamilnadu coast in February, April, August and September 2004. The specimens collected were in the size range of 32 - 48 mrn carapace length (CL) in February and 53 - 75 mm in August. The females sampled were all in an advanced state of maturation, with ripe ova, in both the months. The length-weight relationships were derived as W = 0.000265 L3.Z4fo r males and W = 0.000244 L'.23f or females.
