    Abstract

    The green crab Scylla serrata is commercially the most valuable in India, with great potentialities for large-scale culture operations. In fact, experiments are being carried out in some southeast Asian countries for evolving a technique suitable for the pond culture of this burrowing and cannibalistic species. The present paper gives an account of an experiment undertaken at Veppalodai, Tuticorin during 1975-77, by rearing in individual plastic cages, for ascertaining their survival, growth and production with artificial food supplied. The results obtained from this exercise are highly encouraging with regard to survival, growth, production, etc. The present paper deals with the above work and the results obtained, along with suggestions for evolving a culture technique for pond culture of this species
