Abstract

Esterase polymorphism were studied in Macrobrachium malcolmsonii and Peneaus monodon of two prawns belonging to fresh water and marine water respectively,    Six tissues  were studied viz; gill, hepatopancreas, intestine, muscle, brain and eye. CE esterases are noticed in gill, hepatopancreas of fresh water prawns. ER esterases are also noticed only in fresh water prawns in gill and hepatopancreas, but completely absent in marine water prawns. ChE and CHsp esterases are present in both the prawns. But Esdp, ArE, esterases are noticed in marine prawns only i.e. P. monodon where as in fresh water prawns this type of esterases are completely absent.
