    Abstract

    Mussel farming has developed as one of the major mariculture activities in India. In 2005-06 about 7500 tonnes of farmed mussels were produced and marketed in the country. Thefarming technology is simple and all the farm related activities are at present done manually without any automation. Harvesting and declumping (separating mussels from the rope) farmed mussels is by lifting the mussel ropes and by plucking the mussels from the rope or by stamping if the byssal attachment is very strong.
