An experiment to compare the growth and production of vertically and horizontally suspended mussel ropes was conducted in the CMFRI Demonstration cum Research Farm in Chaliyar Estuary, Karuvanthiruthy, Kozhikode. Approximately 13.5 m of vertically suspended and 24 m of horizontal ropes were set in the farm in January 2005. The growth in terms of length and weight was monitored at monthly intervals. A total harvest of 587.7 kg shell-on mussels were obtained of which 249 kg was from vertical and 339 kg from horizontally suspended ropes.
