    Abstract

    In a successful foray into a largely male preserve, a group of 40 women managed to reap a bumper harvest in oyster and mussel farming at Muthakunnam in the district.Under the guidance of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), the women formed 13 groups and started oyster and mussel farming last November. They prepared 13 farms of 5-metre length and 5-metre width for the purpose. Each group got around 1.5 tonnes of oyster and they harvested a total of 20 tonnes.Each unit used around 100 coir ropes for planting oyster seeds. The Molluscan Fisheries division of the CMFRI provided the technical advice for oyster and mussel farming. Each unit harvested around 1.25 tonnes of mussels from the farms. According to CMFRI, oyster and mussel farming is cheaper compared to fish farming.
