Abstract

The total catches indicated that the prawn fishery off Purakad was on a steadily declining trend from 1972, except for 1974, the total catch of over 2000 t in 1972 declining to less than 200 t in 1976. Though quantitatively all the species were heavily suffering the decline, with the relative proportion more steeply declining, from 29% in 72 to 6% in 76, P. indicus seems to be the species that was most affected; and M. dobsoni, increasing from 52% in 72 to 72% in 76, the least.
