Abstract

The rocky coastal belt of Gujarat possesses an enormous potential resource of lobsters. Gillnets are regularly operated for lobster along the coast of Mangrol, Porbunder and Muldwarka. Gastropods such as Tibia maculata and Tibia curta occurred in large quantities as by-catch along with lobsters. Other gastropods such as Archipecten sp. and Murex sp. also make their occurrence in small quantities.
