    Abstract

    The efforts made by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) to rejuvenate the black clam (Villorita cyprinoides) resource in the Vembanad Lake has paid off as local fisherfolk have started to harvest good catches from the region. Aimed at boosting the clam fishery and enhancing livelihood option for the clam fishers in the region, the Molluscan Fisheries Division of CMFRI re-laid (stocked) baby clams after identifying suitable areas on the northern side of the Thanneermukkam Barrage. As part of this initiative, which was under a project on ‘Rejuvenation of Clam’ taken up by the Fisheries Department of Kerala using the District Panchayat Scheme, approximately 200 tonnes of baby black clams were re-laid in Keecheri and Chakkathukadu areas of the Vembanad Lake under the technical guidance of CMFRI
