    Abstract

    Non-penaeid prawns, Acetes spp., Nematopalaemon temipes and Exhippolysmata ensirostris were found to be important forage organisms of fishes occurring along the Mumbai coast. Their predators have been enlisted from the investigations carried out by various workers in the region and degree of their predation quantified. Of the 79 species of commercially important fishes. cephalopods and crustaceans, 97.4% predated on non-penaeid prawns. Acetes spp. was the food of 92.4%.
