Abstract

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.
