Abstract

In 1967, the dreissinid bivalve, Mytilopsis saUei (Recluz), was first noticed in Indian waters at the Southern Lighter Channel of Visakhapatnam harbor, Andhra Pradesh, India. It is believed that his species was introduced into the Indo-Pacific region from Central America via the Panama Canal and Fiji through ship fouling
