Abstract

A marked difference in growth rate was observed between males and females of Parapenaeus longipes at Mniigaloie. The relationships both between length and weight and between total length and carapace length were different in the sexes. Though smallest prawn that was found with fully mature ovary was 55 mm, it was at 68 mm and above that majority of the prawns were mature. Females generally outnumbered males in the catches. Percentage of maturity among females was highest in May.
