Rajamani, M and Manickaraja, M (1997) On the fishery of the spiny lobster off Tharuvaikulam, Gulf of Mannar. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 146 . pp. 7-8.
Tharuvaikulam is a fishing village near Tuticorin on the southeast coast of Tamil Nadu. Fishing by bottom-set gill nets is carried out off Tharuvaikulam almost round the year. Normally, the swimming crab Portunus pelagicus dominates the catches. But at times lobsters are also encountered in the catches in good numbers. Two species of lobsters namely, Panidirus omatus and P. homarus constitute the lobster fishery off Tharuvaikulam coast.
