Abstract

Sinus gland is a neurohaemal organ wherein hormones from different neurosecretory centres are stored. The sinus gland of Scylla serrata is well developed and macroscopically visible owing to its well known characteristic opacity and slightly bluishhue. It is located at the dorsal aspect of the junction between the medulla interna and the medulla terminalis in the eyestalk. Since it is a compact structure it is possible to remove the sinus gland from the eyestalk. There are two surgical procedures for the removal of the sinus gland. The first procedure involves the removal of the retinal portion of the eye cap and the other involves surgical excision without disturbing the eye cap and thereby the vision of the crab (Kleinholz, 1947).
