    Abstract

    Bivalves are commercially important molluscs belonging to the Class Bivalvia (Lamellibranchia or Pelecypoda), which is the second largest Class under the Phylum Mollusca. They are bilaterally symmetrical, laterally compressed molluscs, with extensive mantle lobes which secrete a single shell composed of two valves. Bivalves are reported to have originated in the euryhaline w a rm shallow coastal waters prior to their gradual invasion to estuarine, brackish, fresh and all the reaches of marine, ecosystems. Although, none have invaded the land, the bivalves are more successful in marine and a few species are found in freshwater habitats. Nearly 652 species of marine bivalves are reported from India, of which 88 species are endemic to Indian waters.
