    Abstract

    Practical dissemination of bivalve farming technologies in the potential maritime locations of Sindhudurg district was undertaken by ICAR-CMFRI. Initially a demoyster farm was setup in Wadatar, in Sindhudurg District under the UNDP-GEF funded project “Demonstration of bivalve farming at Sindhudurg District in the State of Maharashtra”. The training and demonstration for oyster farming was given to the Self Help Groups-SHG, “Prasidhi” consisting of 10 members. Five hundred strings containing 7,000 numbers of oysters were harvested. Each string consists of 10-15 live oysters. Live oysters were sold at the rate of Rs. 150-200 per dozen. A total profi t of Rs.45,000 was realized. This successful case study can be used as a case manual for group action for bivalve farming technology.
