Abstract

The onset of sexual maturity in the male Portunus sanguinolentus occurred in the size range 81-85 mm carapace width while in P. pelagicus it was in the range of 86-90 mm carapase width. 50% sexual maturity was observed in P. sanguinolentus and P. pelagicus males at 100 and 98 mm carapase width respectively. A highly significant (P < 0.001) correlation coefficient (r) values are obtained between chela allometry and carapace measurements.
