    Abstract

    The stomatopod squilla, locally known as 'pucha' or 'puchi' (Malayalam: Che///), are marine crustaceans, caught In varying quantities exclusively by shrimp trawlers operating up to 50 m depth all along the east and west coasts of India. Owing to the presence of large number of spines on the body and the low flesh content, it is not being eaten at present in our country. However, it is in considerable demand since it is a good raw material for converting into fishmeal, poultry feed and manure.
