    Abstract

    Variations in the condition of Donax incarnatus (Gmelin) inhabiting Panambur beach sand were followed for one year. The highest condition indices were in March (9.4) and September (8.~) and the lowest in January (3.5). Seasonal fluctuations in condition were probably related to cycles of gonadal growth and spawning. Based on the data, the best period for commercial exploitation appears to be during March and September.
