Although there are about 600 species of crabs recorded from Indian waters, those commonly used for food belong to 3 families: Calippidae, Portunidae and Grapsidae. Of these, Portunidae includes the commercially important marine species such as Portunus sanguinolentus, P. pelagicus, Charybdis feriatus, C. annulata and C.natator.
