Abstract

The non-penaeid prawns, with the average catch of 57,000 tonnes, constitute one of the important marine resources in India. During 1979-'88 period, the catch of these prawns ranged from 36,303 - 71,985 tonnes, contributing 2.2 - 5% to the total marine fish production of the country. They form nearly 32% of the total prawn production. Although non-penaeid prawns are found all along the coastline, they form fisheries of commercial importance only along the northwest and the northeast coasts.
