Even though experiments on production of cultured pearls were initiated in India in early 1930's, success was achieved only in the 70's when the free spherical pearls were produced. The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI), after successfully producing the spherical pearls, has developed a technology to produce the pearl oyster seed by the hatchery method and farming the oysters at sea. Training was imparted on these important technologies to technicians both at national and international levels.
