Abstract

Adult mussels (Perna viridis) with mature gonad were induced to spawn at the Kovalam Field Laboratory of CMFRI by subjecting them to thermal stimulation. The mussels were kept at 18° - 20°C for half an hour and transferred quickly to sea water at 30° - 32°C. Within an hour, spawning occurred and the orange coloured eggs settled at the bottom of the tank
