Penaiedae species, Penaeus canaliculatus Penaeus indicus, Metapenaeus dobsoni, Metapenaeus monoceros, Parapenaeopsis stylifera, Parapenaeopsis longipes and Trachypenaeus curvirostris from Arabian Sea (Mangalore Coast, India), were genetically examined using RAPD markers. Ten selective primers provided distinct and consistent RAPD profiles in all the seven species. A considerable amount of polymorphism was detected at the interspecific as well as intraspecific levels with all ten primers. A total of 105 fragments were scored. Of these 10 fragments, were monomorphic bands shared by all species. Out of 105 fragments, 95 (90%) bands were polymorphic and shared by at least two species. There are also some fragments, which are highly species specific for a particular primer, which are not at all shared by other species. The range of dissimilarity index is from 0.392 the lowest one to 0.599 the highest one. The least 1-F value is between Metapenaeus dobsoni and Metapenaeus monoceros and the highest dissimilarity index between Penaeus canaliculatus and Trachypenaeus curvirostris.
