    Metapenaeus monoceros, (Fabricius 1798) the ‘brown shrimp’ is a commercially important prawn in the backwaters and estuaries, and up to about 100 m depth in the sea. Many have worked on different aspects of this species as it contributes to the fishery in many countries bordering the Arabian Sea. Notable among them are George (1959, 1970, 1974), George et al. (1963, 1988), Mohamed and Rao (1971), Rao (1973a), Subrahmanyam (1965, 1967a, 1973), Kuttyamma (1973), Rao and Krishnamoorthi (1990), Nalini (1976), Lalithadevi (1988), Nandakumar and Srinath (1999) and Dineshbabu (2006). Rao (1985, 1988a, 1988b, 1988c, 1988d, 1989, 1993c, 1994) studied the fishery and biology of the species along the Kakinada coast while Nandakumar (1998, 2000, 2001a, 2001b, 2004) studied the biology and fishery of the species at Cochin. Sukumaran et al. (1993) gave a comprehensive account on the fishery, biology and population dynamics of the resource on an all-India basis.
