The Edible Oyster popularly known as Aa/i, Kalimgu or Paatti in Tamil and Muru or Miiringa in Malayalam, is a sedentary animal. The- soft part of the animal (flesh) is encased by two shell valves protecting it. While the lower shell valve gets cemented to the substratum in natural beds, the upper valve acts as a lid, to open and close, by a hinge mechanism connecting both valves. The margin of the shell valves usually remains agape permitting water to enter the interior which enables the animal to respire and also to feed by filtering the microscopic organisms in the water.
