Abstract

The windowpane shell, Placuna placenta is one among the pearl producing bivalves. It was identified as the second-priority mollusc species for research during the Second Conference on Aquaculture Development in Southeast Asia held in the Philippines in July 1994 and is the basis for a ‘kapis’ (windowpane shell) fishery in the Philippines. Windowpane shell provides fishermen an additional income-generating source through the sale of its pearls and shells. The empty shells are used as raw material in making shell craft products and are exported.
