The freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii
is more consumer preference because of its delicious nature and export
potential. Monoculture and ployculture trials of freshwater prawn Macrobrachium
rosenbergii were attempted. Production under monoculture was 561 kg
ha-1 and in polyculture it ranged from 361 to 381 kg ha-1.
The present study inferred that low stocking density; proper feed management
and use of aerators are essential for better survival and production.
