Abstract

The Flamingo shrimp Parapenaeus longipes (Alcock, 1705) contributed to nearly 4 % and 6 % of penaeid shrimp landings at Veraval during 2004 and 2005 respectively. In both the years the females dominated the catch with a mean size = 80 mm in most of the cases. Relationship between length and weight was significantly different (p < 0.05) in the sexes. Spent females formed 51 % in 2004 while late maturing constituted 42% in 2005. Though the minimum size at maturity was 81-85 mm, majority of the females were found to be mature at 86-90 mm and above. Females dominated during both the years. Gradual increase in landings was observed from February to April, 2004, but it was reverse during the same period in 2005
