Suseelan, C and Nandakumar, G and Sukumaran, K K and Deshmukh, V D and Rajan, K N and Aravindakshan, M and Sarada, P T (1992) Present status of exploitation of fish and shellfish resources: Prawns. CMFRI Bulletin, 45 . pp. 205-225.



The Prawn fishery of the west coast of India is reviewed with particular reference to monsoon season and related management problems based on observations at Cochin, Calicut, Mangalore and Bombay. With an estimated average annual production of about 25,000 tonnes for the period 1984-88, the monsoon season contributes only 15% to the total prawn landings of this coast. While shrimp trawling remains almost completely suspended in most of the centres during this period, it is very active at Cochin and Sakthikulangara in Kerala Coast and moderately active in Bombay Coast.
