As part of the ongoing sea-ranching programme to replenish the natural stock of shrimps, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research — Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), Mandapam Regional Centre, has released seeds of ‘Penaeus semisulcatus’ (green tiger shrimp) species in the Gulf of Mannar.

A total of 3.8 million 20-day-old post-larvae seeds of green tiger shrimp, locally known as ‘thaalai iral,’ were released in the Gulf of Mannar on Wednesday, said a press statement.

The Gulf of Mannar  is a large shallow bay forming part of the Laccadive Sea in the Indian Ocean with an average depth of 5.8 m (19 ft). It lies between the southeastern tip of India and the west coast of Sri Lanka, in the Coromandel Coast region -->

The officials of the CMFRI released the shrimp seeds in the presence of G. Tamilmani, head-in-charge and Principal Investigator of the project, staff of Tamil Nadu Dr. J. Jayalalithaa Fisheries University and fishermen representatives. The programme was coordinated by CMFRI scientist B. Johnson.

The activity was carried out under the project titled ‘Sea Ranching of Green Tiger Shrimp (Penaeus semisulcatus) Post-Larvae (PL) in the Palk Bay and the Gulf of Mannar, Tamil Nadu.’

The project is aimed at releasing 200 million green tiger shrimp (post-larvae) seeds within four years.
