The process of vitellogenesis in the penaeid prawn Metapenaeus dohsoni (Miers) was studied histologically. The vitellogenesis could be broadly differentiated into 5 stages viz.. previtellogenic, early vitellogenic, late vitellogenic, vitellogenic and spent stages which correspond to the five maturity stages recognised in the species. The microscopic details of different stages of vitellognesis'are described in this paper.
