Cryobanking potentials of marine shrimp gametes

Diwan, A D and Joseph, Shoji and Nandakumar, A (1994) Cryobanking potentials of marine shrimp gametes. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 131 . pp. 16-18.



For developing marine shrimp industry through aquaculture technology, one of the major constraints is non-availability of sufficient seed and spawners to produce seed at the desired time. Cryopreservation of gametes of aquatic animals in contrast to the situation in other vertebrates particularly mammals has met with a very limited success. Very few attempts have been made on cryopreservation of sperms in decapod crustaceans in general and marine shrimps in particular. Efforts are now being made continuously on cryopreservation and cryobanking of penaeid gametes. The viable spermatozoa of P. indicus and P. monodon havebeen successfully preserved in CMFRI.
