Intensive culture of marine prawns

CMFRI, Kochi (1978) Intensive culture of marine prawns. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 3 . pp. 9-12.



The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute is carrying out a series of demonstrations on intensive culture of marine prawns with a view to transfer the technology developed by it to the actual farmers and to promote prawn culture on scientific lines. The results of some of these demonstrations conducted between October, 1977 and May, 1978 in different ecosystems around Cochin are presented in this paper. Data on the prawn culture operations carried out by the traditional method in a paddy field in Vypeen Island, near Cochin, are also included for facilitating comparison between the traditional practice and the intensive culture of selected species of fast growing prawns.
