Abstract

Parapenaeopsis stylifern is one of the commercially important species of penaeids of the Malabar Coast. Unlike most other penaeids belonging to the genera Penaeus and Metapenaeus it is a purely marine species, rarely migrating into estuaries and backwaters. The following notes are based on the study of samples collected from the regular departmental catches of fish at the West Hill substation during the years 1949-'50 and '50-'51. Fishing was usually done in the foreshore waters up to a depth of 4 fathoms; but in '50-'51 the operations were extended once a fortnight up to 8-9 fathoms. In addition to these, material procured from the Kozhikode market has also been examined.
