Abstract

Penaeus semisulcatus de Haan contributes to a considerable fishery on the southeast coast of India, particularly in the Gulf of Mannar. Juveniles occur in large concentrations in the shallow inshore sea, between Pattanamarudur and Tuticorin, covering a coastline of about 20 km. They are fished throughout the year by an indigenous gear known as 'Ola Valai' operated in the waters within 2 m depth; landing about 57 tonnes in 1978-79. The peak abundance was in November- January and June-July. The size ranged from 40 mm to 150 mm total length, majority measuring less than 100 mm, indicating that this area is a nursery ground of the species.
