The Brackish water was selected in Chinaganjam Village, Prakasam District under Semi-Intesive culture system. In summer season in month of March to August, the water quality parameters were measured fortnightly in a month at 7a.m. The production was 8337, 8932 and 9450kg/120, 123 and 126 days and FCR was1.78, 1.81 and 1.82 for P1, P2 and P3. The artificial diet was provided 4 times/day with Manamei feed pellets (Protein 35 and 34%).The final growth was 27.7, 29.0 and 30.0g/120,123 and 126 days, respectively.
