Abstract

The results of the studies during 1995 to 2000 March using different types of cages, spat collectors and other gadgets for farming pearl oysters and mussels at Vizhinjam showed that large aggregations of edible fishes, ornamental fishes, cephalopods and other marine organisms frequently appear in the farming areas in search of substratum, shelter, food and breeding purpose. It is also observed that this system acts as a sanctuary conserving these resources by providing them breeding habitat.
