Wise use of important mollusc species in mangrove areas: Malaysia
MetadataShow full item record
For centuries, several edible mollusc species are being collected for food by coastal communities from these mangrove ecosystems. The most common molluscs collected are cockles, various species of oysters, clams and cerithids. This paper attempts to discuss the most practical culture technologies that have been developed for some of the more important mollusc species that are cultured in Malaysia. In order of priority, these are Anadara granosa (blood cockle), Crassostrea iredalei (brackishwater slipper oyster), Crassostrea belcheri (mangrove oyster), and Cerithidia obtusa (horn shells).
