    Abstract

    Bivalve resources comprising of clams, cockles, oysters and mussels are distributed throughout the Indian coast including the estuaries and backwaters and are commercially exploited by the local fishers for their sustenance. Of the 652 species of marine bivalves reported from India, 88 species are endemic and are mainly exploited for their meat and shells. They are also used in the ornamental shell craft, pharmaceutical, lime and dye industries. The total average bivalve fishery of Tamil Nadu and Puducherry during 2016-2020 was estimated.
