The objective of this research is tojind out the best temperature, lime and handling method for black tiger shrimp transportation with dry system. Anesthesis method was applied in this research by adopting gradual cooling ut the rate of 5"Cper hour. Anesthesis was done at various temperatures ( I Y, 17, and 15°C) and time (10, 15, and 20 minutes) with temperature in puckuge 17°C. The result showed that the survival rate of black tiger shrimp was affrcted by anesthesis temperature, but not by the time of cooling at the critical
temperature. The optimum temperature for anesthesis was 15°C with the optimum length of time was I0 minutes. Meanwhile the optimum temperature for transportation was 17°C. gave the highest survival of the black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon Fab.).
