    Abstract

    Comprehensive account on the biology of the Indian pearl oyster, Pinctada fucata (Gould) has been wanting. Age and growth of pearl oysters of the Gulf of Mannar was studied by Herdman (1903), Hornell (1922), Devanesen and Chidambaram (1956), Chacko (1970) and Chellam (1978). The age and growth of th6 pearl oysters of the Gulf of Kutch was studied by Gokhale et al. (1954), Narayanan and Michael (1968) and Pandya (1975). Chellam (MS) has traced the growth of the pearl oyster from the settlement of the spat in the hatchery, whose day of spawning is known, to the age of three years, reared in the farm at Tuticorin Harbour.
