Abstract

The marine shellfishes of India is chiefly constituted by crustaceans and molluscs. Among crustaceans, penaeid prawns are most important in view of the quantum of landings, value and increasing demand for export trade. These are followed by crabs and lobsters. Although there are over 600 species of crabs recorded from Indian waters, only a few of them are being used for food purposes (Rao et al., 1973). The commonly utilised crab species for food in this country belongs to three families, viz., Calippidae, Portunidae and Grapsidae.
