Pillai, N N (1991) Studies on the life history of some carideans of the southwest coast of India. PhD thesis, Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. Submitted to Cochin University of Science and Technology.



The penaeid and caridean prawns are the most sought after decapod crustaceans all over the world. This is because of their importance as an esteemed food of gourmet and economic significance. There is an ever increasing demand for prawn products in the international and national markets. At the same time it is realised that enhancing of their production from the coastal waters from where they are largely exploited a t present may not be possible due to the limited availability of stocks, heavy fishing pressure and increasing environmental hazards. This has led to frantic search for additional resources or methods of augmenting the production either through culture in suitable systems or exploitation of the resources in the under exploited andlor new grounds.
