Abstract

Among the maritime states of India, Maharashtra contributes over 50% of the total marine prawn catches of the country. There are about a dozen species of prawns contributing to the commercial fisheries of this region. Analysis of the data obtained by regular sampling from two centres—Sassoon Dock and Versova— for the years 1957-59 shows the species composition in different months and size frequencies. An attempt is made to find out the nature of recruitment of the various species into the fishery at different seasons. The spawning seasons of these species are determined by observations on the preponderance of ripe individuals in the catches.
