Abstract

The mechanised trawling has received considerable importance in the last decade due to the increasing demand for prawns by the export industry. The trawl fishery is largely supported by smaller species like Metapenaeus dobsoni and Parapenaeopsis stylifera. Since there is considerable demand, the price of prawns shows an upward trend season after season. An account on the price structure of the commercially important species of prawns of Mangalore area during 1980-'86 is given in this article.
