    Abstract

    Worldwide, bivalves are recognised as a source of inexpensive protein of high nutritional value. In India bivalve resources are still exploited at a subsis tence level. The growth performance, natural abundance, adaptability to new environment, simple and inexpensive culture techniques have made mussel a candidate species for culture operations. The bivalve mussels of the genus Perna are ex tensively cultured in Thailand, Philippines and New Zealand.
