Habitat preferences of shrimp (Penaeus monodon) in Kelantan Delta, Malaysia


Author(s): Suharmili Rosle and Sakri Ibrahim

Abstract: The abundance study of shrimp population, their life stages and habitat preferences were carried out in Tumpat Waterways at Kelantan Delta, Malaysia. Shrimp trawl was used to collect the samples. The specimens were preserved in 10% formalin for species identification. Total length (TL) and carapace length (CL) were measured to determine their life cycle stages. Among five species recorded, Penaeus indicus and Penaeus monodon were found highly abundant in brackish water which accounted for 76 and 70 total numbers respectively. The juvenile and adult life stages were found most prominent in this study with Penaeus monodon found abundantly at Rhizophora sp. and Nypa fruticans.
