Muthu, M S and Laxminarayana, A (1982) Induced maturation of penaeid prawns - a review. In: Proceedings of the Symposium on Coastal Aquaculture, Part 1, MBAI, 12-18 January 1980, Cochin.



For hatchery production of penaeid prawn seed a steady supply of spawners is essential for effective planning of the operations. The uncertainty of procuring spawners from the wild has stimulated world wide interest in the efforts to induce penaeid prawns to mature under controlled conditions. The methods employed, research results achieved and the constraints encountered are reviewed critically in this paper.
