Abstract

GROWTH OF PENAEUS MONODON FABRICIUS, 1798, IN POND CULTURE (DECAPODA, PENAEIDAE) BY K.J. JONG, K. H. KOU and S. N.

The Black tiger prawn, Penaeus monodon Fabricius, 1798, has been cultured and studied for a long time (Anonymous, 1932). However, adequate quantitative descriptions of its complete growth are still not available. Such descriptions are particularly important for the culture of broodstock. Studies on the growth of the commercially most exploited penaeid prawns were made with tagging methods of wild populations in the sea. (e. g.
