    Abstract

    Clams are perhaps the most widely distributed and utilized aquatic invertebrates providing protein-rich food in much greater abundance than mussels and oysters. In India, their exploitation at present is limited to the natural resources which may get depleted in course of time. Clam culture has not been taken up in our country on any commercial or semi-commercial scale, though there is scope for it because of the availability of vast stretches of suitable areas as well as seed clams, either from nature or by producing them in hatcheries. Such a proposition may become imperative in future since the demand for more food has to be met by resorting to new methods for augmenting food production.
