Abstract

Purchon (1968) has stated that about thousand articles are being published annually on molluscs and out of these 300 to 400 articles deal with oysters. This is mainly because oysters enjoy a wide range of distribution and are ubiquitously present in different habitats. Among marine organisms the oysters are one of the most widely cultured organisms. These facts account for the voluminous literature on oyster biology that have come out during the past fifty years.
