Thomas, P A (1986) Prawns of Goa with a note on the biology of Parapenaeopsis acclivirostris (Alcock). Indian Journal of Fisheries, 33 (3). pp. 351-354.
Discarded fractions of the commercial landings along the coasts of Goa were found to contain both young ones and adults of several species of prawns | shrimps which seldom figure either in the catch statistics or among the component species taken to constitute the catch. Observations spread over a period of 8 years (1971-79) record the presence of about 28 species of prawns|shrimps in this territory, and these are listed. Specimens of Parapenaeopsis acctivirostris (Alcock) were obtained regularly, though in very small numbers, from 25- to 45-meter depths during the period December 1972 to May 1973, based on which some preliminary observations on the biology of this species aire also presented.
