Abstract : A total of five species belonging to two genera of one family were recorded from the depots and market of Hinthada Township during the study period from June 2008 to May 2009. Most of the prawn species were caught throughout the year round in Htay Win Market but Macrobrachium javanicum and Exopalaemon styliferus was not recorded in Shwe Myint Zu and Phoe Mun fishery depots through the study period. Total catch quantity was 7426.1 kg. In this quantity, M. lamarrei was found to be the highest which was followed by M. idae and M. scabriculum. Highest catch quantity was recorded in September. Total catch number of Exopalaemon styliferus was the highest followed by M. lamarrei and M. javanicum. Total catch number of prawn was the highest in September. Wet season (Jun to September) was observed to the most abundance season for prawn species. Seasonal abundance of the recorded prawn species showed no significant difference (p>0.05) with weather parameter (rainfall) although significant difference (p>0.05) was observed in the species E. styliferus in the year 2008 – 2009.
