James, D B and Ruparani, Grace (1999) New resource for the Indian beche-de-mer industry and its management. In: The Fourth Indian Fisheries Forum Proceedings, 24-28 November 1996, Kochi.



Although sea cucumber processing was introduced to India more than one thousand years back, the processing was restricted only to a few species. Hornell (1917) in his classic paper on the Indian Beche-de-mer industry, its history and recent revival mentioned only Holothuria scabra, H. spinijera and Bohadschia mQrmorata as important species for processing_ These three species alone were processed till 1989 in the Gulf of Mannar and Palk Bay.
