The crustacean fishery resources of India

Jones, S (1966) The crustacean fishery resources of India. In: Proceedings of the Symposium on Crustacea, Part 4, MBAI, 12-16 January 1965, Ernakulam.



The crustacean fisheries of India have assumed considerable importance in recent years in the economy of the country. Exports of frozen and canned prawns and frozen lobster tails have been steadily on the increase earning very valuable foreign exchange. The commercially important crustaceans consist of the prawns, lobsters and crabs caught from the sea and brackish waters. Except the giant freshwater prawn, limited quantities of which are exported in frozen condition, the freshwater crustaceans contribute only to a sustenance fishery of minor importance.
