The paper embodies the results of growth and production of Penaeus monodon cultured during 1988-89 in the salt pan area at Tuticorin. The overall growth rate of the hatchery produced seeds stocked in ponds varied from 25.1 mm/5.85 g to 35.2 mm/9.8g per month and the best growth was associated with low stocking density. The post-larvae attained marketable size of 32 g in about 140 days. Supplementary feed consisted of 7-9 ingredients with protein value of 38%. The conversion ratio varied from 1:1:5 to 1:1.91.
