Abstract

Kanyakumari and Manappad coasts is seasonal, commencing by May-June and closing by October-November. Annual landing of the species ranged from 559 t to 1204 t during 1981-86. This fishery commences by the onset of the southwest monsoon, and is constituted by large-sized prawns (modes 15!-155 mm to 171-175 mm in males and 196-200 mm in females). The high percentage (48%) of maturing and mature prawns indicates a breeding population contributing to the fishery. Occurrence of P. indicus population in sequence along the fishing centres of the southwest and southeast coasts suggests probable migration of the prawn from the former to the latter coast during the fishing season. This confirms the presently believed migratory behaviour of the species.
