The authors started a few years back a survey of the Phyllosoma larvae of the Indian waters (Prasad and Tampi, 1957). A thorough knowledge of these larva: and the biology of the lobsters has now become essential because in recent years a fishery of considerable magnitude for lobsters has been established along the southernmost part of the west coast of India. The fishery is dependent on more than one species but at present off Vizhinjam (76" 59' 15" E; 08" 22' 30" N), which is one of the important fishing centres, the dominant species constituting the fishery is Panulirus burgeri, popularly known as Burger's crayfish.
