The Indian white prawn, Penaeus indicus, a highly desirable species for culture, has been domesticated at the Marine Prawn Hatchery Laboratory of CMFRI, at Narakkal. Following the techniques developed at the Laboratory to induce them to breed in captivity and to rear them through all the stages of its lifehistory in the farm itself, five successive eenerations were raised at the MPHL. The advantages of this kind of domt slication in large-scale over the conventional culture of- this prawn are briefly disrtissed in this note.
