Reproduction fecundity and sex ratio of the green tiger prawn penaeus semisulcatus



Reproduction fecundity and sex ratio of the green tiger prawn penaeus semisulcatus



Indian Journal of Fisheries 21(1): 152-163



Investigations on reproduction, gonado-somatic index, fecundity and sex ratio of P. semisulcatus were carried out at Mandapam Camp [India] from April 1967-March 1969. Five stages of maturity were differentiated depending on the color of the ovarian lobes, ovarian thickness and size of the ova. Female prawns with mature ovaries occurred throughout the year showing that they spawned continuously, the peak season being June-Sept. and Jan.-Feb. The gonado-somatic index varied from 2.2-13.2. The minimum size at maturity in females was 23 mm carapace length. Fecundity ranged between 51,605-660,904. There was no relation between the fecundity and length or weight of prawn, or weight of ovary. The samples examined contained more or less the same number of males and females, although during certain months the males were more numerous, while in other months females dominated.
