Break through in white prawn nauplii transportation by CMFRI

CMFRI, Kochi (1992) Break through in white prawn nauplii transportation by CMFRI. CMFRI Newsletter No.58 October- December 1992, 58 . pp. 2-4.



A major problem faced by our shrimp hatcheries is the non-availability of spawners of the desired species around the year. It impairs the planning of the hatchery operations on an year round basis. For instance the spawners of the white prawn, Penaeus indicus which are not always available along the west coast are available in plenty off the east coast. This prompted the CMFRI to investigate the feasibility of transporting Nauplii from east coast to west coast. The team consisting of N.N. Pillai, P.E. Sampson Manickam, K.R. Manmadhan Nair, MR. Arpudaraj, N. Rajamani and K.N. Gopalakrishnan worked on this project and achieved the breakthrough in nauplii transportation to help the languishing hatcheries and to reduce the substantial cost of spawner maintenance and consequently the cost of seeds.
