Abstract

Characterisation and classification of complete moult cycle of Penaeus indicus have been worked out on the basis of setal development Seotogenic moults taging was found to be a rapid and simple technique. Since excision of appendage is not required, this technique is non-destuctive and permits repetitive moult staging of an individual shrimp.
