    Abstract

    Comparative studies were made on the growth and biometric relationships of the pearl oyster Pinctada fucata (Gould) Tuticorin stock at (Tuticorin (TST) ^ parent stock) transplanted from the Tuticorin Bay (8.71N;78.21E) in the Gulf of Mannar along the Indian southeast coast to Kollam Bay (8.81N; 76.51E) in the Arabian Sea along the Indian southwest coast (Tuticorin stock at Kollam (TSK) ^ transplanted stock). At the time of transplantation, Kollam Bay did not have a native stock, however, within a year, the transplanted stock spawned and oyster spats were collected from within the farm (Kollam stock (KS) ^ progeny stock). The growth in dorso-ventral measurement and total weight in Kollam Bay was 1.4^1.6 times and 3.1to 6.8 times respectively greater than that observed at Tuticorin.
