India's molluscan resources are either exploited indiscriminately to the detriment of the stocks as in some regions or altogether neglected as in most other regions. The mussels, oysters and clams are fished in large quantities in some areas causing marked depletion of the populations. It is necessary to culture these shell-fish in order to avoid damage to natural stocks through over-fishing.
