    Abstract

    Aplysia occurs in a variety of color patterns that correlate with the seaweed upon which it is feeding and living. Aplysia which is a gastropod mollusc is one of the important candidates for marine aquarium. It also has large ganglion nerve cells. This neuron is very similar to those present in vertebrates, making them good subjects for neurological research, electrophysiological studies as well as studies on conditioned responses. At present, we fully depend on exploitation from the wild. In the present contet, spawning of the aplysia Donabella rumphi kept in captivity at Mandapam is reported.
