Our knowing of the quantity and placement of threatened species of decapods, and of the character in their extinction threats has enhanced drastically lately, and has enabled the improvement of species conservation innovations.

This quantity makes a speciality of saving threatened species from extinction, and emphasizes the significance of the profitable implementation of conservation motion plans via cooperation among scientists, conservationists, educators, investment corporations, coverage makers, and conservation agencies.

2006; Bueno and Shimizu 2009). The increase in claw dimensions in adult male decapods is often associated with agonistic and/or reproductive behaviour (Mariappan et al. 2000). In most heterochelous decapod species reproductive activities are associated with the major chela, while non-sexual activities (such as food capturing and manipulation, and grooming) are usually associated with the minor claw (Mariappan et al. 2000).
