Palar estuary is a bar-built estuary located about 70 km south of Chennai, runs perpendicular to the sea coast and enters into the Bay of Bengal near Pudupattinam colony. The Cheyyar river which runs towards east in the Kancheepuram District and the Buckingham canal which runs parallel to the sea coast, both of them confluences with the Palar estuary before entering into the Bay of Bengal. There was no organized fishery for clam and oysters in this estuary, however, the fishery is conducted for clams and oysters whenever there is a scarcity for fish.
