    Abstract

    Among the echinoderms, holothurians are commercially imnortant. Certain species of holothurians are processed and the processed material is known as Beche-de-mer or Trepang in trade parlance. Beche-de-mer is considered a Chinese delicacy. At present, Indie is earning a foreign exchange of more than one crore rupees by exporting Beche-de-mer . This product has no internal market. It has been introduced by the Chinese and is in existence in the Gulf of Manner and Palk Bay for more than one thousand years. It has high nutritive value and also considered to have certain medicinal properties. The main international markets are Hongkong, Singapore and Malaysia.
