    Abstract

    Palinustus waguensis commonly known as 'Japanese blunthorn lobster' and locally in Tamil as 'Alkadal sivappu singera' occurs usually at a depth of 100-200m and are caught in deep sea trawls. But on 15.9.2006, three females of P. waguensis were obtained in the indigenous gear-'Nakku valai' a bottom set gill net with a mesh size of 45-50mm. P. waguensis is distributed along Indo-west Pacific region, Honshu island, Japan, Thailand, south west India and Andamans. They have edible and ornamental value. In Japan, these lobsters which form sporadic catch are often sold to the public aquaria
