Aravindakshan, M (1990) A fishery for fidler shrimp Metapenaeopsis stridulans Alcock off Maharashtra coast. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 106. pp. 10-11.
Metapenaeopsis stridulans belongs to the tough shelled varieties of shrimps known as 'Dugdu' in Marathi. The decline in catches some months like October and November is attributable to the fact that during post - monsoon months, trawlers operate in shallower waters where larger sized penaeids are available in plenty due to their influx during this period. Another species of Metapenaeopsis present as strays was M.hilarula. Judging from the present rate of exploitation, it can be predicted that the fishery is likely to sustain at the present trend for some more years.
