Muthu, M S and Laxminarayana, A and Mohamed, K H (1984) pH as a factor influencing maturation of Penaeus indicus in captivity. Indian Journal of Fisheries, 31 (2). pp. 217-222.
Unilaterally eye-ablated females of Pgnaeus indicus have matured and spawned in 3-4 days time when the pH of the maturation pools was maintained at a level similar to that of the sea, between 8.0 and 8.2, by daily addition of sodium carbonate. But eye-ablated females kept in pools where the pH was allowed to fall below 7.9 did not attain full ovarian development and no spawning was obtained.
