Abstract

Maharashtra is the leading prawn producing state in India, accounting for 75 % of the uon-penaeid and 34.3% of the penaeid prawn landings in the country. The marine prawns catch in the state during the five years 1982-'86 were studied here. It is immediately apparent that the prawn fishery of Maharashtra is multispecies with different species fluctuating widely in abundance from year to year. However, there has been a general increase in prawn catch during the past five years. The prawn fishery along the Maharashtra coast appears to be in fairly good shape.
