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
