Radhakrishnan, E V and Deshmukh, V D and Manisseri, Mary K and Rajamani, M and Kizhakudan, Joe K and Thangaraja, R (2005) Status of the major lobster fisheries in India. New Zealand Journal of Marine and Freshwater Research . pp. 723-732.
Commercial exploitation of lobsters from the Indian seas began in the 1950s. Annual landings have been declining from a peak of 4075 t in 1985 to 1364 t in 2002. Major fisheries were located on the north-west, south-west, and south-east coasts. Among the 12 species recorded, only four species of spiny lobsters (three littoral and one deep sea) and one species of slipper lobster are commercially important.
