Viable nauplii of the tiger prawn Penaeus monodon have been produced by artificial insemination. A technique of implanting electroejaculated spennatophores from the males into the thelycum of newly moulted, eyeablated females is described. The implanted spennatophores are retained by the female till the next moult. Three females were artificially inseminated 10 times and every time they matured and spawned. One of the spawnings yielded healthy normal larvae which were reared to postlarval stage in the laboratory.
