The different techniques of hatchery production of penaeid prawn seed that have been developed in different countries of the world are generally capital intensive, involving high technology. A developing country such as India with limited resources needs a low-cost technology which is simple enough to be used by semiskilled workers. The technology presented here is based on a multi-disciplinary research experience from experimental to pilot stage, on induced breeding of marine prawns and hatchery production of penaeid prawn seed during the past decade. It is developed by utilising the locally available resources and materials and is appropriate to the socio-economic conditions prevailing along our coast.
