    Commercial mussel farming gained rapid strides since 1996 in India and in the recent years, the farmed mussel production of the country crossed 18,432 t (2009). This leap in mussel production was observed mainly in the State of Kerala, though efforts to popularize the technology were undertaken in the States of Karnataka, Goa, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. Karnataka State is endowed with several estuaries along its 300 km coastline that offers natural productive sheltered environment suitable for the development of mariculture. Though shrimp farming practices are in vogue in tidal areas along the coastal areas, presentIy many environmental issues impede its progress in the region. The technology for farming filter-feeding bivalves in suspended farming facilities, presented encouraging results at several coastal and estuarine areas of this State.
