Abstract

The Central Marine Fisheris Research Institute has achieved a breakthrough in 1988 in the spawning and spat production of the venerid clam, Paphia maiabarica (Chemnitz) at the Shellfish Hatchery Laboratory, Tuticorin. Since then the hatchery technology is being upgraded for the mass production of the spat of this species. As a pan of this progamme, an experiment was conducted during February-March 1994 to determine the optimum stocking density of the spat in the rearing tanks in the hatchery, as such information is useful to optimise production.
