Abstract

Kakinada Bay which has a total spread of 146 sq.km. area has diverse moUuscan resources, especially bivalves and gastropods. Several workers have studied in detail, the molluscan resources of the Bay and their fishery characteristics. The Bay also harbuors a population of resident pearl oyster, Pinctada chemnitzii towards its eastern side near Hope Island. But Pinctada fucata is an exogenous species as far as Kakinada Bay is concerned.
