Abstract

Clam resources form the livelihood of more than five hundred families in and around Ashtamudi Lake, situated between latitude 8°45' - 9°28' N and 76°28 - 77" 17' E. The alarming increase in the exploitation of Paphia malabarica in the recent years forced the Government of Kerala to impose ban on the fishing activities during its breeding season based on the recommendations of CMFRI in 1993.
