Culture of sea-cucumber

James, D B (1996) Culture of sea-cucumber. CMFRI Bulletin-Artificial reefs and Seafarming technologies, 48 . pp. 120-126.



The sea-cucumbers are entirely marine and distributed from the Arctic to the Antarctic region. They are distributed right from the supralittoral zone to the hadal zone. They inhabit a wide variety of habitats viz. rocky, muddy, sandy and coral. Most of them live among corals. They are well distributed on the reefs of the Indo-West Pacific region. Good concentration of them are found in the Philippines. Species belonging to the families Holothuridae and Stichopodidae alone are used for processing since they grow to a large size and the body well is also thick.
