Abalone culture

Victor, A C C (2004) Abalone culture. In: Proceedings of Ocean Life Food and Medicine Expo, 27-29 February 2004, Chennai.



Considering the economic importance of the Indian abalone, Haliotis varia the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute initiated experiments on its culture at the Research Centres, Tuticorin and Mandapam in 1996. A breakthrough was achieved in the larval rearing and juvenile production of this species in 1998 at Mandapam. The larva obtained from the spawning of H. varia passes through various stages of development namely the motile trochophore, veliger, gliding stage before settling as juvenile on the 26" day. The technology has been tested repeatedly in the hatchery and standardized.
