Abstract

A survey conducted in Vellar estuary during April and May 1978 on the abundance of the seed of Meretrix casta (Chemnitz) indicated that the densest population occurred in the mid-portion of the estuary. The population was from scarce to absent near river mouth and moderate in the upper reaches. From The environmental characteristics associated with such distribution, it is evident that M. casta prefers a Salinity range of 30 - 32 %„, a depth of so -100 cm and a sandy muddy substratum
