A variety of molluscan resources such as edible oysters, pearl oysters, clams, mussels and gastropods are distributed along the coastal area of Andaman and Nicobar islands. Among the bivalves, the distribution of green mussel Perna viridis was earlier known only from a small creek at Sippighat (Mahadevan, 1983).
