This paper briefly recapitulates some of the experiments carried out by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute at its various research centres along the east and west coasts in culturing mussels in the open sea and sheltered bays. Variations in the technology of mussel farming. principally rope culture and raft culture have been experimented under field conditions. Local fishermen ware involved under the Operational Research Project and Lab to Land Project with the main objective of developing mussel farming into an industry and to provide additional income to the fishermen. In the light of our experience, the problems involved and the constraints in the effective implementation are objectively reviewed. The possible remedial measures for overcoming some of these constraints are presented in this account
