    Abstract

    The present paper is based on periodical samples of the razor-shell, Solen kempi, obtained for a period of about 21 months in 1960-61 from Gav-khadi near Ratnagiri where it forms fairly productive beds which are regularly fished by the local people chiefly for culinary purpose. Besides Gav-khadi, only in a few other places like Ganpatiphoola and Devgod in Ratnagiri District there exist minor beds of Sokn. But by transplantation of the clams from these beds to areas where similar environmental conditions exist it is possible to increase the resources several times to meet the prevailing demand. In the following account an attempt is made to furnish particulars of the existing conditions of the fishery along with information on taxonomy and some aspects of biology of the species.
