    Abstract

    The shellfish includes two highly diversified phyla i.e. phylum Arthropoda and phylum Mollusca. These two groups are named as shellfishes because of the presence of exoskeleton made of chitin in arthropods and shells made of calcium in molluscs. These two major phyla are invertebrates. Phylum Arthropoda includes spiders, scorpions, ticks, mites, crustaceans, millipedes, centipedes and insects. The economically important groups of two phyla include lobsters, shrimps, crabs, clam, mussel, oysters, chank, squid and cuttlefish.
