    Abstract

    The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) in India developed bivalve farming technologies in the 1970s. but these were not widely adopted at the time. In 1993, CMFRI undertook an action research program to encourage farming of edible oysters, mussels, clams and pearls along the southwest coast of India. Successful demonstration of the viability of bivalve farming led to the initiation of commercial farming of mussels and generated interest among farmers and entrepreneurs in developing production of pearls and farming of edible oysters. Given the high potential for mollusc aquacultu re, both for the local and export markets, issues such as demarcation and issuance of lease rights on aquaculture zones in public waterbodies by the government, organization of marketing systems and provisions for technical and fin ancial support to farmers need to be addressed.
