Abstract

In recent times from 1977 onwards consequent to the increased operations of the trawlers especially in slightly deeper areas, some prawns which have not been earlier represented in this fishery are noticed to occur in increasing abundance in the landings at Sassoon Dock so as to contribute to substantial fishery. In view of the increasing demands for prawns, the details of the fishery and biological aspects of these prawn have been studied right from the initial occurrence of the species in the fishery and the results are presented here.
