The giant freshwater prawn is suitable for cultivation in tropical and subtropical climates. The most commonly cultured species in India is Macrobrachium rosenbergii. It is a hardy species by virtue of its ability to adapt to various types of fresh and brackish-water conditions. It accepts pelleted feed and has omnivorous feeding habit.
Adverse impacts ha Adverse impacts have not been reported so if there are effects they have so far not been noticeable. However, impacts of escapes in tropical river systems might not be noticed that readily. There is the potential for viruses to be introduced via aquaculture stock Peng et al. This seems to be a very small risk since it has been demonstrated that in the case of M.
When using artificial insemination interspecifically, although zygotes were produced they did not progress past the gastrula stage. Similarly no interspecific pairings took place between M. In the males these walking legs can have a vibrant shade of blue and can also be twice the body length. The largest males can attain a total length from tip of rostrum to the end of the telson of mm compared to mm for the largest females Holthuis, In general, the body form is typical of a decapod crustacean with the head and thorax fused into a cephalothorax.
The rostrum at the front end of the cephalothorax is very prominent with dorsal teeth and ventral teeth. Another distinctive feature of the adult male is that the moveable finger of the second walking leg or cheliped is covered in tightly packed long setae that give a velvety appearance to the appendage. Males can attain larger size than females and in dominant males the second walking legs are much longer and thicker. The abdomen of the male is narrower and the female, as well as having a wider abdomen, has longer pleura the overlapping plates of cuticle extending from the exoskeleton and these combined form a chamber for incubating the eggs carried on the pleopods.
The male genital openings are on the fifth walking legs and the females genital pores are on the third walking leg. For detailed descriptions see Ismael and New and New The colours of M. In small individuals, delicate striping on the cephalothorax can be seen but these markings are not apparent in tank-reared specimens. The chelipeds of dominant males are bright blue but more yellowish in non-dominant males and females.
The ventral side is pale and translucent. The distribution in this summary table is based on all the information available. When several references are cited, they may give conflicting information on the status.

A freshwater prawn farm is an aquaculture business designed to raise and produce freshwater prawns or shrimp 1 for human consumption. Freshwater prawn farming shares many characteristics with, and many of the same problems as, marine shrimp farming. Unique problems are introduced by the developmental life cycle of the main species the giant river prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii. The global annual production of freshwater prawns excluding crayfish and crabs in was about , tons, of which China produced some , tons, followed by India and Thailand with some 35, tons each. Additionally, China produced about , tons of Chinese river crab Eriocheir sinensis. All farmed freshwater prawns today belong to the genus Macrobrachium. Until , the only species farmed was the giant river prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii , also known as the Malaysian prawn.
The Oracle-" But this, too, was coming clear now. I felt suddenly giddy and retreated a step. I had to shout against the wind. He swooped in, kissed her cheek, and headed back for the central lift, quietly hoping that Captain McDowell suffered boils and public humiliation for his lousy timing.
