Abstract

Crassostrea madrasensis (Preston) is a predominant species of oyster in the estuaries and backwaters of Kerala , Karnataka, Tamil Nadu apd Andhra Pradesh States in India (Plate.2). Hornell (1910) reported on the exploitation of C.madrasensis on the Pulicat lake and on the Ennore backwaters. In most of the areas, the oyster beds were destroyed by the shell gatherers for lime industry. Small scale exploitation of C.gryphoides is reported from the West Coast of India also from the States of Gujarat, Maharastra and Karnataka. The most important places where C. gryphoi~ is distributed and exploited are Satpati, Palghar, Navapur, Kalve on the Bombay coast, and Alibang, Jaytapur, Malwan, Karwar and Honavar, South of Bombay. C.cucullata (Born) inhabits mostly the rocky substratum on both the east and the west coasts. C.discoidea is distributed.
