    Abstract

    Gulf of Mannar, on the south-east coast of India, is rich in molluscan resources, chiefly the sacred chanks and pearl oysters. These populations in their natural habitat are subject to predation by gastropods, echinoderms and fishes. Serious damage was caused especially to bivalves in the natural habitat by the predatory gastropods like Cy~natiurn cingulatiunz and Murex virgineus.
