    Abstract

    The beche-de-mer industry in Maldives is of recent origin. The exports started in a modest way in 1986 and during the current year Singapore imported maximum quantities from the Maldives. At present nine species are processed in the Maldives along with the best grade holohurian Holothuria (Microthele) nobilis which is in abundance. The Lakshadweep and Maldives being contiguous areas in the Arabian Sea the faunal composition is similar. Processing can first be taken up by Minicoy people who are ethnically connected with the Maldive people. Because of their relations and contacts they can see and learn the processing and initiate it in Minicoy. Later processing can be extended to other islands since the holothurian fauna is similar and abundant in other islands.
