    Live specimens and shells of Mirabilistrombus listeri (Gray, 1852) were collected from the by-catch of the shrimp trawlers operating off Visakhapatnam (17° 42' N, 83° 15' E) in the Bay of Bengal. The live specimens were maintained in the marine hatchery in 1 tonne capacity fiberglass tanks containing seawater of 32-35 ‰ salinity. The morphometric measurements and the behavior of the conch was recorded. The identification of the species was based on earlier description by Abbott (1960) and Subba Rao (2003).
