Abstract

Whelks are recently being exploited from east and west coasts of India on a commercial basis for meat export trade. Babylonia spirata and B. zeylanica are the two species of whelks which form bycatch of shrimp trawlers in Sakthikulangara-Neendakara area along the southwest coast of India and the former species contributes to the fishery along Annappanpettai, near Portonovo along the southeast coast of India.
