Abstract

The Kuruma prawn, Penaeus Japonicus, which is endemic to northwest and western central Pacific regions around Japan, Korea and Papua-Guinea has been reported to occur in small concentrations off the Indian coasts in isolated areas. It forms a small fishery off Mumbal. Its Juvenile abundance has been reported from the backwaters adjoining Chennai. Being a larger species fetching better price, its availability in the Cuddalore region arouses considerable commercial interest
