Scientific investigations were undertaken during early 70's by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, at Tuticorin. The Institute has conducted R & D programmes on all aspects of Oyster farming during the last two decades, culminating in a wealth of informations on the technology of Oyster farming.
