Abstract

Lobsters are among the most priced seafood delicacies enjoying a special demand in international markets. As against a world average annual productio'n of2.1 lakh tonnes, India's average annual lobster production is about 2000 tonnes. With the distinction of being perhaps, the only seafood resource in India's trade economy, which remains relatively low down the ladder in terms of quantity of production but brings in maximum foreign exchange, lobsters have been the subject of study for more than two decades now. The lobster fishery in India is supported by two groups of lobsters - the spiny lobsters (Palinurus homarus, P. polyphagus, P. ornatus and P. versicolor) and the scylla rid lobster (Thenus orientalis).
