    • Abstract


      The food preference ofP. canius, carried out from fish samples of Hooghly-Matiah estuary and Chilka lake is described. Qualitative study of the food showed the species to be a predatory carnivore right from its fingerling stage. The study justifies the inclusion of the species in brackishwater aquaculture as a biological control of unwanted crabs.
