Studies of population characteristics are€the main bases for formulating management measures for sustainable utilization.
The high market demand for mud crabs (Scylla serrata) has caused intensive fishing for this resources and tended to threaten their sustainability. The cells were identified as hyaline, semigranular and granular haemocytes. Status in World Register of Marine Species Accepted name: Scylla serrata (Forskal, 1755) Scientific synonyms and common names Cancer serratus Forskål, 1775: 90. The four species are: Scylla olivacea (Herbst, 1796) Scylla paramamosain Estampador, 1949; Scylla serrata (Forskål, 1775) Scylla tranquebarica (Fabricius, 1798) References 1550 t in 2008; Brown, 2010), it is also a popular target for recreational fishers (ca.
Typically associated with mangroves in estuaries and sheltered coastal habitats, they are found in soft muddy bottoms where they dig deep burrows. Haemocytes of the mud crab Scylla serrata (Forskål, 1775) were characterised based on morphological features using light and electron microscopy, and cytochemistry.
These studies and others highlight a need for greater focus on factors that may influence population structure and distribution for marine species. The purpose of
They are found across the Indo-West Pacific.

Portunus (Scylla) serrata de Haan, 1833-1849 (1835): 44. Portunus serratus Rüppell, 1830: 10, pl. For the female mud crabs, those fed with grated coconut had the highest percentage survival of 100.00% among others. In this thesis, I have examined genetic structure within and among populations of an estuarine species of mud crab Scylla serrata (Forskal, 1775) using a number of genetic markers and methods.
The mud crab (Scylla serrata) is an increasingly important fisheries species in Australia and southeast Asia.Although it represents a relatively small-scale but valuable commercial fishery (ca.
(Eds. Length and weight characteristics of mud crab (Scylla serrata) 57 with trash fish got the highest percentage of survival (83.33%). In: Keenan, C.P., Blackshaw, A. The portunid crab S. serrata was first described by Forskål in 1775 as Cancer serratus from Jiddah, Red Sea. Table 1. It is a widespread species occurring in coastal tropical and subtropical regions in the whole Indo-Pacific region.
