Reproduction in crustaceans is a highly complex process that requires precise coordination of external and internal factors to be successful. The field of crustacean reproductive endocrinology has moved from the classical approach of endocrinological techniques such as extirpation and additive methods, to the modern era of advanced biochemical, immunological, molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology methods. During last two decades, extensive endeavor has been captivating on the crustacean endocrines regulating reproduction, to authenticate their roles in the regulation of reproduction as well as their biochemical and molecular mechanism of action. In the present chapter, we have tried to recapitulate recent developments in molecular advances taken place in the reproduction regulation of crustacea via hormones, opioids, neurotransmitters and other molecules. In addition to providing a review of the scientific literature, we have also included our perspectives.
