Clams belonging to a number of species and a fevi' other edible bivalves occur in appreciable quantities in different parts of the Indian coasts and support subsistence fisheries. Thousands of square kilometres of our coastal seas, backwaters and estuaries form ideal habitat for the growth of these bivalves and many among the poorer classes of the coastal population use them as food although it should be admitted that a vast majority of other fish-eating population of our country have not developed a liking for these shellfish. The flesh of clams being rich in glycogen, protein and health giving minerals is highly nutritious.
