Abstract

A method for collecting large number of pueruli and post-pueruli of the spiny lobster Panulirus Sp. using different types of collectors suspended from a floating raft is described. Mangalore tile was found to be the best collector. For optimum collection of larvae the collectors should be suspended near the bottom. The best season for collecting the larvae was from February to May. The abundance of the larvae has been correlated with the current pattern of the locality, the shoreward current wafting in large number of just metamorphosed larvae towards the coast for settlement on the bottom.
