    Abstract

    The black clam, Villorita cyprinoides (Family Corbiculidae) is the most important clam species landed in India which contributes about two-thirds of the total clam landings of Kerala. Major proportion of this species is harvested from Vembanad Lake, followed by the Malabar Coast. The black clam fishery was recorded from Vembanad Lake, the largest estuary, 96 km long, on the west coast of India. More than 4,000 fishermen are involved in the fishery which includes 2,000-2,500 of active fishers.
