G. Sudhakara Rao (Editor) E.V. Radhakrishnan (Editor) Josileen Jose (Editor)

Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute realised the importantance of crustaceans as an exportable resource and stated concentrating on Prawn fisheries research and devolopment since 1960s. The Institute published 'Bulletin 14' ebtitled 'Prawn Fisheries of India' in 1969 which brought to light the complete information on taxonomy, biology and fisheries of the commercial species of prawn in general and penaeid prawns in particular. Since then many studies were conducted on various aspects of prawn fisheries during the last 40 years.

The Institute realising the need to update the information on prawn fisheries is timely bringing out this critical information as 'Handbook of Marine Prawns of India'. The book covers almost all the aspects of capture fisheries of prawns contributed by the present and former scientists of the Institute. Authors have taken care to include all the information about the biological aspects of the species concerned. Wherever necessary results obtained in the laboratory culture experiments were also recorded in addition to the studies made on wild stocks. Importance was given to highlight the population dynamics and stock assessment to design proper management measures.

This book will be handy to all sections of entrepreneurs, researchers and students interested in capture fisheries.

About the author

G. Sudhakara Rao

After getting my M.Sc. degree from the Gorakhpur University I joined the Central Marine Fisheries research Institute (CMFRI) in 1963. During my 37 years of research on marine fisheries in CMFRI I devoted much of my time in the study of prawn fisheries, both capture and culture, at Gopalpur (Orissa), Kakinada (Andhra Pradesh), Veraval (Gujarat), Visakhapatnum (Andhra Pradesh) and Cochin (Kerala) in different capacities. I also spent some time on the studies of demersal fisheries, crab fisheries. My work on the population dynamics of penaeid prawns attracted the attention of the FAO scientists and I collaborated with them in the study of Bioeconomics of Demersal Fisheries of Northeast coast of India and training of scientists in the application of Beam-4 program in fisheries. I published 46 research papers on different aspects of marine fisheries. Before retiring in June 2000 worked as Head of Division, Crustacean Fisheries Division of CMFRI for 4 years.
