Abstract

All available information on the edible crabs of India are brought-under this bibliography. The number of species that come under this group is limited. The term "edible" crab includes only those species that are accepted as common food crabs and such that support a fishery of some magnitude at least in some areas of the country. Since great- importance is attached at present to the increased exploitation of the Indian crustacean fisheries, a compilation that would give a complete and connected account of the relevant sources of information is considered quite desirable, although the accounts relating to the biology and bionomics are scattered and diffused.
