    Abstract

    The Moorad Estuary (11° 32’ N to 11° 35’ and 75° 35’ to 75° 40’ E) located along north Kerala, southern India is a small estuary with a water-spread area of about 1.4 km2, supporting fishery of finfish and bivalves. Meretrix casta forms a major fishery of this estuary. The clam beds are composed of sand and mud. Suitable site for clam culture was selected in the Moorad estuary based on the salinity, tidal flushing and substratum for the experimental culture of the white clam M. casta.
