Abstract

The hatchery production of Portunus pelagicus has not been undertaken in our country. So work was taken up to standardise and popularise a technology for the hatchery production of seed of P. pelagicus with a view to overcome the nonavailability of crab juveniles for farming and also to replenish the depleting stock of the wild by sea-ranching (by releasing the laboratory reared young ones into the sea) which would help a sustainable fishery of crab in the region.
