Lobsters have a complex and prolonged life cycle , which often involves several planktonic ("free floating") larval stages. Although =ports of research conducted in different parts of the world indicate the amenability of lobsters to being cultured in closed systems, lobster aquaculture is still a virgin arena in India. Larval rearing of lobsters in captive conditions has always posed a problem owing to the complexity of their life cycle with delicate larval stages. The key bottleneck for lobster aquaculture is the hatchery-nursery phase. Like the spiny lobster, the sand lobster, represented by a single species in India's lobster fishery - Thenus orientalis (Lund, 1793), too has a complex and prolonged life cycle, though not as prolonged as in the case of the former.
