    Gastropods fishery has gained its importance due to the demand for edible molluscs and ornamental shells. Along Tamil Nadu coast gastropods are exploited from Gulf of Mannar, Poompuhar, Nagapattinam and Chennai and are sustaining many shell craft industries nearby. In Chennai Fisheries Harbour, ornamental gastropods except Babylonia spp. are mainly landed as by-catch along with other resources in the trawl landing.
