    Abstract

    The open sea mussel culture in this particular case met with the impediment of unfortunate sabotage of the seeded mussel by some miscreants. It was rectified by reseeding, but the yield was not that much conspicuous compared to the trials undertaken in estuaries. All the SHG members are of unanimous opinion that the government agencies should come forward with improved marketing facilities, as marketing of the mussel was perceived as one of the biggest constraints. Provision of loans with reduced interest rates and freezer facility for storage of harvested mussels can bring about a breakthrough in this sector in the near future.
