    Abstract

    Species diversity of any region can be illustrated by means of an available checklist. It provides an overview of the species that have been recorded. and can be considered to understand the local fauna. Fortnightly surveys were carried out to collect the shell-molluscs samples during 2012 - 2014 period from the by-catch of shrimp/fish trawlers landed at Sakthikulangara-Neendakara Fishing Harbour, Kollam. Collected bivalves and gastropods included both empty shells and living animals. Collected shells were brought to the laboratory and placed in freezer for 24 hours. This would liquefy the mollusc body and allowed easy extraction with a strong jet of water.
