Abstract

Unusually heavy catches of Metapenaeus dobsoni were made from the inshore waters during 12th to 18th July, 1988 at the fishing villages of Perianeelangarai kuppam, Panayur kuppam and Kanathur-reddi kuppam. The catches were made using Edavalai, a type of bag net which requires 4 catamarans and 20 men to operate. The length range of the prawns landed was between 78 and 102 mm and dominant size group (31.4%) was 90-94 mm.
