The crustaceans that are cultured include the most familiar decapods - the prawns, lobsters and oralis, and the smaller lower crustaceans such as anostracans, cladocerans and copepods. The former group due to their greater food value and economical importance, has attracted considerable attention for culture in the confined and manageable water bodies. Among them, the prawns in consideration of their demand, the state of art of culture and the developmental emphasis are most important and occupy the foremost place in the culture fisheries of India.
