Abstract

The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), established in 1947 is the largest among the eight fisheries research institutes under Indian Council of Agricultural Research. The institute is mandated to conduct capture fisheries and mariculture research and has significantly grown in stature and research infrastructure over the past six decades. The annual marine fish landings crossed 3 million tonnes in 2009 and has been showing gradual upward trend since then. We are fully prepared to face the challenges facing the sector on account of high fishing pressure on the resource, climate change, market dynamics and global pressures. Research is geared towards proactive interventions to make marine fisheries sustainable, environment friendly, economically attractive and socially relevant. The Handbook of prawns is highly illustrative comprehensive guide to the identification of commercially important prawns landed along the Indian coast. The taxonomic keys for identification of families, genera and species will help the researchers, students and field workers to identify the species with ease and accuracy.
