The annual production of mussels, which was 10,000 tonnes in the early 1990's, doubled by 2002 through increased exploitation and farming. Among the maritime states, maximum production is along the Keralacoast. C.M.F.R.I has conducted demonstration progranunes in open sea and estuarine fanning of mussels by using rack, raft and long line methods. Hatchery production of seed by induced maturation, induced spawning and larval rearing has also been achieved. The method of harvcsting, processing and the nutritional value of mussel meat are given in this paper.
