At Kovalam bay (Madras) rafts made of casuarina poles have been used to suspend mussel seed transplanted ropes for culture. An average growth of mussel at the rate of 12.8 mm per month is reported. Harvestable size of 75 mm is reported to have been reached in 3 J months time. However similar experiments done at Kakinada (Andhra Coast) and Ennore (north of Madras) did not yield conclusive results.
