    Abstract

    The holothurians or sea cucumbers are commercial echinoderms, which are exclusively marine in their habitat. Holothurians inhabit different depths of the ocean as well as different habitats such as rocky shores, sandy beaches, muddy flats, coral reefs and mangrove swamps. Out of 154 genera and 1,150 species recorded in the world, 62 genera and 160 species are available in India; among them, 88 are recorded in Andaman and Nicobar Islands, 39 in the Gulf of Mannar and 32 in Lakshadweep.
