James, P S B R and Narasimham, K A and Rao, K Satyanarayana (1993) Prospects for development of oyster culture in India. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 125 . pp. 1-3.
Oysters occur all along the Indian coasts in backwaters, bays and estuaries forming subsistence fisheries. The meat is consumed locally and of late there is growing demand for it in some parts of the country. The shell is used in lime based industries. At present oyster culture is not practised in the country except for the experimental culture conducted by the CMFRI.
