In the seas around India, nearly 200 species of sea-cucumbers are known, of which about 75 are from the shallow waters within twenty metres depth. Of these a dozen species are of commercial value. Sea-cucumbers occur in plenty in the Gulf of Mannar and Palk Bay, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands and the Lakshadweep.
