    Abstract

    Molluscs are an important sourcc of food and form a major fishery around the world, contributing significantly to the coastal economy. Molluscan aquaculture has been developing rapidly in recent decades, reaching 14 million t in 2006, accounting for approximately 27% o f the total world aquaculture production (FAO 2009). One of the greatest advantages of cultured molluscs, is that these species are filter feeders and do not require any external feed inputs, thereby minimizing the major input costs as well as the environmental impacts.
