Josileen, Jose and Arputharaj, M R and Ramakrishnan, A and Viramani, A (1996) Larval rearing of the crab Portunus pelagicus (Crustacea, Portunidae) in hatchery at Mandapam Regional Centre of CMFRI. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 143 . pp. 23-24.
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.
