The gregarious habit gradually disappears after the larvae are about 10 days old.

India, Bangladesh, Viet Nam and Roswnbergii export a significant proportion of their wild-caught and farmed prawns. Fresh fish utilized as food in the feeding trials was rarely eaten by the larvae. The following tables will serve as a general guide. The larval stages require brackish water for survival. The female is placed ventral side up while the male presses down from above, bringing its genital pores in close contact with the cleaned ventral thoracic region of the female, and with a sudden vigorous vibration of the pleopods and trembling of the body the sperm is ejected and deposited in one gelatinous mass on the female’s ventral median thoracic region.

Right mandible with 2 big blunt teeth and 8 to 10 long slender ones on incisor area, macrobracgium region with 2 stout and 4 short teeth. To a lesser extent, this also occurs in the USA mainly for consumption by Asians or in restaurants serving Asian food and Japan.

Peeled, mostly wild-caught Macrobrachium rosenbergii have long been exported globally, but farmed shell-on and normally head-off freshwater prawns are also a familiar sight in the supermarkets of Europe now. Dead eggs and foreign material are carefully and cleverly removed from time to time by the sensitive and versatile cultuvo pair of thoracic legs.


Specimens reared in pure freshwater all died within 4 to 5 days. This is a point-of-no-return, the moment when larvae had lost their chance for survival see Anger, The eggs are then extruded through the female genital pores into the brood chamber, first on one side then the other. When the water is clear a strong torch will reveal the characteristic bright macrobrrachium reflection of their eyes, and specimens momentarily stupified by the bright light can be caught with a hand-net drawn from tail to head.

The steamed egg is then broken up into small pieces and graded with the strainers into different sizes as above. Such prawns will be able to grow almost to maturity by the end of the padi growing period.

Basal endite of maxilliped 1 with many slender spines; endopod 3-segmented; exopod with 10 plumose setae on the outer edge of the enlarged basal half. As soon as the colour of the eggs starts mqcrobrachium from bright orange to light grey, it is advisable to add enough seawater gradually to the tank to raise the concentration to about 5 percent seawater. When much of the body has emerged a sudden jerk frees the entire animal, including all its appendages, from its old shell.

FAO – Macrobrachium rosenbergii

Effect of population structure and density of prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii farming in temperate climates. Exopod and endopod of uropod articulate with protopod; exopod bears 9 to 10 long plumose setae, endopod 6 to 7 setae.

No differences in larval survival were observed among the experiments with different food types Fig. Berried females were placed in individual 50 L plastic tray tanks and eggs were monitored.


In agreement with the regression formulae of mortality per treatment, differences in survival denote that the lowest survival rate was obtained in T 2 Fig. All 5 pairs thoracic legs segmented; 5th pair longest, remains uniramous.

The highest survival occurred at 50 larvae L -1 8. For convenience in feeding it is better to concentrate the larvae at one rosenebrgii of the rearing trough by shading. Macrobrachium rosenbergii is widely distributed in fresh and brackish waters in southeast Asia. Uropod with 12 to 16 plumose setae on endopod, 16 to 20 on exopod.

It is often found in extremely turbid conditions. It is particularly well-suited to small long-term family businesses, can be practised by relatively unskilled fishing and rural people, generates products which may be consumed by all social classes, and is amenable to integration with crop production.

The experimental analysis of distribuition and abundance. Supraorbital spine very prominent. Young specimens moult more frequently than old ones: Cephalon contains eyes, antennulae, antennae, mandibles, maxillulae, and maxillae. During the third day, the anterior ends of the germinal bands enlarge in size and become circular, representing the prostomial lobes.

At the same time the pleopods are extended to form a protected egg passage.
