    Abstract

    Mussel farming in India can be considered as ‘ rural aquaculture’ since it meets all the requirements to be qualified as “ rural “ according to the definition of Edwards and Demaine {1997). It is done by small-scale farming households or communities; it uses extensive or semi-intensive low cost production technology; it avoids the use of formulated feeds and it produces a commodity which has a low-market value affordable to poor consumers.
