Lobsters are one of the most valuable and highly priced crustaceans and an important export commodity of lndia. Though widely distributed along the entire coast, major fishery is located on the northwest, the southwest and the southeast coasts. Although nine species of spiny lobsters (Palinuridae) have been reported from the Indian coast (Radhakrishnan, 1993, only three littoral and one deep sea form are commercially important. Among the six species reported from the northwest region (Chhapgar and Deshmukh, 1971), two species, the palinurid spiny lobster Panulirus polyphagus (Herbst) and the scyllarid Thenus orientalis (Lund) predominated the fishery.
