Abstract

The Painted crayfish Panulirus versicolor (Latreille) Is widely distributed in the Indo-West Pacific region . Although it has been reported to occur in the Indian waters on both the east and west coasts it does not contribute signficantly to the commercial fishery in any part of the coasts. During our regular observations on the lobster fishery off Kayalpattinam and Tharuvalkulam near Tuticorin on the southeast coast of Tamil Nadu we noticed sporadic landing of this species along with P. omatus and P.homarus, which constitute the commercial lobster fishery of that region.
