THE molluscs are an important group of shellfish and are exploited along the Indian coasts. Their meat is used as food; the shell is an important raw material in lime based industries and also in making curios. In temperature countries culture of molluscs such as oystelS, clams, mussels scallops and abalones is widely practised to augment production. In India, technologies for fanning several species of molluscs have been developed during the past two decades, mainly due to the efforts at the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRl).
