Appukuttan, K K (1996) Marine molluscs and their conservation. In: Marine Biodiversity: Conservation and management. Menon, N G and Pillai, C S G,(eds.) CMFRI, Cochin, pp. 66-79.



Marine invertebrates in general, especially molluscs are able to ivithstand fishing pressure, because of their high fecundity, reproductive capacities and planktonic larval life. Wliere as there are cases of depletion of stock due to over exploitation by commercialised fishing and indiscriminate collection of rare species. Appropriate conservation measures are to be taken for judicious exploitation of the existing reserve and to impose precautionary measures to resist overexploitation of rare specimens leading to extinction.
