    Abstract

    The coastal stretch of Konkan Maharashtra is endowed with large number of west flowing rivers forming productive estuaries and creeks fringed by mangrove vegetation. The coastline stretching across the districts of Raigad, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg are marked by the presence of narrow creeks offering sheltered areas for aquaculture activities. Considering the potential for expanding bivalve farming in Maharashtra, surveys for selecting suitable sites for coastal farming were conducted from 5th to 8th October, 2013 covering Thane,Raigad, Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg districts.
