The former, excluding the cephalopods, comprise mainly the bivalves and the latter a variety of bivalves and gastropods- Development of the edible resources is linked with popularisation and acceptability of the meat as an item of food and the marketing of the meat or the products in the domestic and export sectors. The non-edible species contribute greatly to Industrial raw material in the form of extensive sub fossil deposits in the estuarine, brackish water and coastal areas. Other’s of this kind support a lucrative ornamental shell and cultured pearl trades.
