    Abstract

    Bivalve molluscs such as edible oysters, pearl oysters, mussels, scallops, clams and cockles are widely distributed both in the tropical and temperate waters. Most bivalves are exploited for their delicious meat and as a cheap source of protein. In recent years, the depletion of wild stocks due to intensive exploitation and also poor productivity from the wild due to environmental pollution and damage, increased the demand for farm grown products. Unlike other bivalves, the pearl oysters are cultured for their precious pearls and shells.
