Sundaram, K S and Sarvesan, R and Mohamed, K H and Shanbhogue, S L (1969) Catalogue of Molluscs, Prawns, Stomatopods and Marine Algae in the Reference Collections of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. Technical Report. CMFRI, Kochi.
The present Bulletin which includes catalogues of molluscs, prawns, stomatopods and marine algae is in continuation of the two earlier ones dealing with other groups in the Reference Collections of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute. Of the molluscs 366 species have been listed representing Gastropoda, Bivalvia and Cephalopoda. A good number of them is of interest to amateur conchologists; there is a fair representation of economically important species, and a few are rare or little known forms of scientific interest. Ninety-five prawn species are catalogued, the majority of which support the important prawn fisheries of the country. Among those included here is a number of hitherto unrecorded deep sea prawns from grounds discovered by exploratory trawling in recent years. The collection is a very valuable one for reference purposes in view of the great economic importance of this group.
