Laboratory production of seed of green mussel Perna viridis

Rengarajan, K (1983) Laboratory production of seed of green mussel Perna viridis. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 51 . p. 21.



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
