India has ever remained one of the major contributors to the world production of marine crustaceans. The penaeid shrimps constitute the backbone of seafood export industry as the major foreign exchange earner as well as a source of livelihood for millions of fish workers. Frozen shrimp contributes about 70% (Rs. 4,480 crores) of the total export value of our country and the share of capture fisheries is 59% by volume. As penaeid shrimps are targeted for fishing, knowledge on the present status of the fishery is critical for implementation of proper management measures.
