Babu Philip, M and Appukuttan, K K (1997) Heavy landings of whelks, Babylonia spp. in trawl catches off Quilon, southwest coast of India. Marine Fisheries Information Service, Technical and Extension Series, 147 . pp. 12-14.
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.
