    Abstract

    Edible oyster farming seems to be providing sweet rewards for women self-help groups in Kerala, thanks to the initiatives of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute to commercialise the venture in backwaters and estuaries. If the recent bumper harvest of oysters and mussels by a 40-woman group near Kochi from around 16 units is any indication, these groups have successfully reaped an average of 1.5 tonnes from each unit. Currently there are 50 such groups across the State concentrating on oyster farming. Oyster meat is priced at ₹600/kg, while that of mussels is at ₹660/kg. Besides the live consumption of oysters is also on the rise in five star hotels, which is an emerging market.
