    In India states like Kerala and Karnataka have a flourishing bivalve fishery driven by demand for bivalve meat. However, in states like Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu bivalve meat consumption is very negligible and demand is driven by the lime and shell craft industries only. Bivalves are locally known as “Gollalu” in Andhra coast with major species recorded being Crassostrea madrasensis, Saccostrea cucculata, M. meretrix, Meretrix casta, Marcia opima, Paphia malabarica, Tegillarca granosa, T. rhombea and Perna viridis. Mainly distributed along the shallow regions of Gostani estuary and Godavari estuary. In the Gostani estuary, the bivalve fishing grounds are Konadu, Moolaguddu, Nagamayyapalem, Thottepalem, Chinnanagarama, Asipalem, and Gudivada.
