Radhakrishnan, E V and Vijayakumaran, M (2004) The status of lobster fishery in India and options for sustainable management. In: Large Marine Ecosystems: Exploration and Exploitation for Sustainable Development and Conservation on Fish Stocks. Somvanshi, V S,(ed.) Fishery Survey of India, Mumbai, pp. 294-311.
Lobsters form one of the most valuable cru stacean resources, which have been exploited commercially for the past four decades. Annual landings increased from 350 t in 1965 to 4100 t in 1985 but have declined since then , Though lobsters are distributed along the entire coast of India major tishery grounds are located in the northwestern, south-western and south eastern coasts. Among the twelve species recorded from Indian waters four species of spiny lobsters (three linoral and one deep-sea) and one species of slipper lobster constitute the commercial fishery.
