Abstract

Crustaceans comprising numerous edible species of prawns, lobsters and crabs inhabiting different ecosystems form significant portion of the aquatic food resources of the world. The average annual production of edible marine crustaceans of India during 1995- 2001 was 0.36 million tonnes. Due to ever increasing demand for edible marine crustaceans from foreign markets, there has been heavy exploitation of these resources in an unprecedented scale from the Indian seas. Enhancement of fishing effort in deeper grounds, modernization of craft and gears and intensive fishing has resulted in enormous fishing pressure on these resources.
