Soni, Shalini and Kanaujia, D R and Mohanty, A N and Mishra, Prasanti and Sethi, S N (2007) Comparative larval biology of three Macrobrachium species under controlled conditions. In: Freshwater Prawns: Advances in biology, aquaculture and marketing, 2007, Kochi.



Three large sized Macrobrachium species-. viz. Macrobrachium rosenbergi;, M malcolmsonii and M gangelicum are available in Indian riverine systems. The study on the seed production and growout of these species are being carried out to develop technologies for commercial application. Hence, the knowledge on comparative larval biology of the three species is extremely important to give a new line for developing hatchery technology for large-scale seed production in different agro-climatic conditions. The present communication deals with comparative study of larval growth and seed production of the three larger species.
