wne of the factors adversely affecting the production of prawns in the culture fisheries, particularly in the semiintensive culture system, is the incidence of 'soft' prawns. Although reliable estimation of the production loss on account of this syndrome is at present not available, it leads to poor or retarded growth, greater mortality rate and low value to the affected prawns. In certain cases, it causes total mortality of the stocked population in the culture system.
