Clams occur abundantly along Indian coast, particularly in the estuaries and backwaters.The clams are rich in protein, glycogen and minerals and are easily digestible. The clams burrow in the mud and their movements are very much restricted. In the experiments at Kakinada, a very high production, nearly double the yield in Malaysia, was obtained per unit area in a relatively shorter period of culture operations. Clam culture is low intensive—both in capital and labour and has a tremendous potential.
