Abstract

The Malabar region of Kerala (Kozhikode, Kannur, Mahe, Kasargod) has significant bivalve resources contributing to subsistence fisheries of the local population. Clams and oysters form the major resources in the estuaries and backwaters. The clams, Meretrix casta, Meretrix meretrix, Villorita cyprinoides, Paphia malabarica and the edible oyster, Crassostrea madrasensis form the major exploited bivalve resources of commercial significance.
