Trends in crustacean fisheries

Mohamed, K H (1969) Trends in crustacean fisheries. Indian Farming, 19 (9). pp. 36-39.



Crustacean fisheries have great economic importance in this country. Although fishing for prawns, lobsters and crabs has been the traditional occupation of the coastal fishermen in India for considerable length of time, reliable information about them was not available till recently. Similarly, the export trade of prawn pulp from west coast of India to Burma and Ceylon was as old as the rice trade of the latter countries with India. At present, among the prawn and shrimp producing countries of the world India ranks second only to the United States.
