Abstract

Experiments were conducted for the first time In the Andamans to culture green mussels, Perna viridis in veloo netting bags and coi,r ropes in back water creek and inshore water. While growing of mussels in velon netting bags did not succeed, the rope method gave encouraging results. Mussels of 47-81 mm sizes were collected for this purpose from natural habitat and seeded to the coir ropes.
