Thangaraj Subramanian, V (1998) An assessment of crab resources off Chennai (Madras). Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 152 . pp. 2-6.
Crabs, which form the bulk of bye-catch of trawl-fishing, have been increasingly experiencing heavy fishing mortality along the Chennai coast since the introduction of mechanised trawlers in the 1960s. High consumer demand coupled with easy availability of finance for fishing operations caused the additional pressure on the stock.
