Abstract

Age and growth of Penaeus merguiensis from Maharashtra waters were studied. The estimates obtained by Bhattacharya analysis and Gulland-Holt plot were L∞ = 203.7 mm and K = 2.15 yr-1 for males and L∞ = 254.9 mm and K = 1.90 yr-1 for females. The maximum size observed for males was 188 mm and 238 mm for females. The male and female prawns after one month larval period attain 134.2 mm and 156.3 mm length in 6 months and 180.0 mm and 216.8 mm in one year respectively.
