Mud crab hatchery technology

Marichamy, R and Rajapackiam, S (2000) Mud crab hatchery technology. In: Marine Fisheries Research and Management. Pillai, V N and Menon, N G,(eds.) CMFRI; Kochi, Kochi, pp. 747-752.



The portunid crab Scylla oceanica ts preferred as a candidate for farming and fattening by virtue of its export potential. As wild seed stock is inadequate to meet the growing demand, there has been a concerted effort in countries like Taiwan, Japan and India to develop hatchery technologies for seed production not only for farming but also for sea ranching. Results of experiments on brood stock management, incubation, seed production through larval rearing, live feed production for larval stages, water quality management, crab culture and fattening conducted in tanks at Tuticorin are presented in this paper.
