Abstract

Heavy landings of M.dobsoni, popularly called 'khopra' in Oriya were noticed at Paradeep centre during the off season in March and April 1995 in the trawl net. It was the largest catch ever landed in the last 10 years. It is also the most important species of prawn in the commercial fishery of Orissa coast. The unusual fishery occurred when the prawns migrated to the shallow waters and were caught by the trawlers
