    The capture, culture and trade of mudcrab are of increasing importance in the coastal areas of the Indo-Pacific region. Mudcrab is considered as a very expensive sea-food delicacy all-over the world. Widespread interest exists in crab fattening in the countries bordering Bay of Bengal. It is feared that the intensive and indiscriminate fishing of this marine crab and the absence of any management measures may cause a decline in the population. Its reproductive capacity is high. It is possible to culture them in specially designed coastal ponds, pens and cages. Experiments conducted in certain parts of brackishwater regions in India have shown high prospects of commercial culture.
