Macrobrachium : The Culture of Freshwater Prawns is a compilation of the global information on the farming of freshwater prawns of the genus Macrobrachium with special emphasis on India. Beginning with a brief introduction to the biology of giant freshwater prawns and their culture, the book reviews the global statistics on freshwater prawn farming.
