Shell lime is prepared from shells and is used for white washing on the walls of buildings and betels. 1998-2001. The oyster fishery is related to the conditions of the substratum suitable for attachment, depth of the water and the salinity of the medium. Most of the catches are consumed by the local men and the rest is exported. Animals with bilateral symmetry have dorsal and ventral sides, as well as anterior and posterior ends. The Spineless cuttle fish, Sepia inermis, occurs both in south-east and south-west India and is caught by trawls, fixed nets or beach seines, etc. The main market for Loligo species landed in the UK is as whole squid for export; only a small amount is sold on the home market, together with some imported canned delicatessen products/Thus there is little incentive towards development of new squid products in the UK but outlets possibly worth pursuing include frozen packs of strips or rings of squid enrobed in batter, and paella or other seafood dishes … reproduction in which eggs are released by the female; development of offspring occurs outside the mother's body. 3: Mollusks & Echinoderms. The gastropoda includes a number of species for edible purposes; such as the Top shell, Trochus niloticus, the Turban shell, Turbo marmoratus, the winged shell, Strombus canarium, the Purple shell, Thais bufo, etc. The dye was collected as a fluid first from the hypobranchial gland of the snail situated on the roof of the mantle. September 14, 2001 Economic Importance.-- Abalone, snails, etc. Sexual maturity is reached about one year after hatching. Understanding the ecological role of a species within an ecosystem depends largely on knowledge of its trophic relations (Pimm, 2002; Montoya et al., 2006; Braga et al., 2012). The Japanese flying squid, Todarodes pacificus, is found in Western Pacific, Northern and East­ern Pacific, and in north Japan. Till recently Cypraea moneta was used as money in many parts of Africa.

The harmful mollusks are slugs and shipworms. The squids are eaten mainly by Chinese, Italians, Spaniards and Puerto Ricans. ("CephBase", 1998-2001; Wilson, 1999), Long-finned squids have a muscular bag behind the head which contains the organism's gills that provide rapid jet-propulsion used to escape predators. Comprehending these trophic interactions and the position of species within a foodweb is a crucial step in clarifying the dynamics of marine communities and the impacts individual components (i.e. (Grzimek, 1972), This species is very common during specific times of the year in nearshore waters and may prey on small fish and herring important to nearshore fisheries.

Economic Importance: Some of the marine species caught in Hong Kong waters are edible. Squid is an economically important cephalopod in India represented mainly by Loligo duvauceli, Sepioteuthis lessoniana, and Doryteuthisspecies. The subfossil de­posits of Pulicat Lake near Chennai and Vembanad Lake in Kerala support a prosper­ous lime industry. Two of these species (A.media and A.subulata) have largely overlapping ranges in the Mediterranean and northeastern Atlantic, while A.africana is found along the west coast of Africa. The fish­ing season of the chanks is between October and May. October 1998; ... 2. to maintain the fisheries’ economic viability, ... An important feature of the management regime is . 1972.

The body is soft, un-segmented, bilaterally symmetrical and consists of head, foot, mantle and visceral mass. They are either freshly retailed in local markets for domestic consumption or exported to foreign countries as live, fresh, dried, salted, brine, or other edible product, altogether making a tremendous contribution to the economy of Hong Kong. In Malayasia the Ark shells (Anadara sp.) The Loligo squid fishery is of vital importance to the economic health of many commercial fishing communities, particularly in the Mid-Atlantic (MA) and Southern New England (SNE) areas. Many peoples in the United States become paralyzed when they consume infected clams and mussels which are carriers of paralytic shell fish poisoning. Pharaoh cuttle fish, Sepia pharaonis is caught throughout the year with trawls and hand jigs. Doryteuthis opalescens play important roles as both predators and prey in the oceanic trophic pyramid. In western Japan and in Philippines the fishermen use spears, set nets and jigs. "CephBase" (On-line). In India the disease Fasciolopsiasis is caused because the snails are the intermediate host of the intestinal fluke, Fasciolopsis fuelleborni. Classification of Molluscs 3.

Placuna placenta (window pane oyster) helps in the prepara­tion of “Mouktik Bhasma” which helps in gaining of youth and vitality. They are caught by trawls and purse seines and the peak landing season of this cuttle fish is between March to June. fertilization takes place within the female's body. socio-economic importance of the Loligo fishery, with the aim to obtain a picture of (a) spawning and fishing ground locations, (b) environmental conditions perceived to be related to favourable catch per fishing effort, (c) importance of the cephalopod fishery to The eggs of oceanic species may be laid in large sausagelike gelatinous masses or singly. The Quahogs (family Veneridae), Razor clams (family Solenidae) and soft shelled clam (family Myacidae) of the class Bivalvia are in great demand in the markets of United States. It is caught by otter trawls and hook-and-line. makes seasonal movements between breeding and wintering grounds. During Livingstone’s travelling period (1871-1876) in Congo and Lake Tanganyika regions, Cypraea moneta was used extensively as coin. Next is the United States, Japan, Malayasia, and Europe which consume a large proportion of clams; mainly cockles are harvested in North-West Europe and Malayasia. Loligo forbesii leads a rather solitary life, only interrupted during breeding season and when they form large schools to migrate. In India, not well known cephalopod fishery has developed along our coastal ar­eas. Reproductive behavior and specific mating rituals are limited to the act of congregating on the bottom of the sea before fertilization. In Chile, the mussel fishing has acquired the front rank among the South American countries. Squids, cuttlefishes, octopuses. The flesh is used as food in Japan and south-east Asian countries. The short club cuttle fish, Sepia brevimana is caught in the eastern Indian waters between July to Febru­ary. During these years the cowries were shipped to Europe, Eng­land, the Netherlands and Portugal in Bar­rels or sacks. (Grzimek, 1972), Little is known of communication among Loligo forbesii, yet the most predominate communication and perception channel is visual, using their large, well-developed eyes to recognize sexes for mating, prey for eating, and so forth. The flesh is in high de­mand for consumption and as bait. The swollen capsules shrink as the embryos develop and, after approximately thirty days of embryonic development, the young hatch, resembling miniature adults, about 5 to 7mm in length. "MarLIN: The Marine Life Information Network for Britain & Ireland" (On-line). The most commercial fisheries and markets are located in Japan and in Mediterranean countries. Molluscs are essentially aquatic mostly marine, few freshwater and some terrestrial forms. These include their economic importance as a food and bait resource for humans as well as their ecological role within the greater extent of the food chain as both predators and prey for a number of diverse organisms. Why does plant cell possess large sized vacuole? The royal tyrian purple dye was the source of two snails—Murex brandaris and Nucella lapillus and was used by the ancients. New York, NY: Van Nostrand Reinhold Company. Welcome to BiologyDiscussion! They are found in the coastal shallow waters and are collected by hand-picked method or often used mechanical devices. The squid fish plays a major role in balancing the marine ecosystem. For reproduction, members of Loligo have fused, unpaired gonads located at the posterior ends of their bodies. The collection and management of the chank beds in Tamil Nadu are controlled by Tamil Nadu Fisheries Department. Some mollusks are indirectly harmful to man but most of them are beneficial.

Since prehistoric times octopuses are ex­ploited for human consumption. This squid, when cooked, is what is commonly called calamari. The maximum amount of oys­ter meats are collected from two genera— Ostrea and Crassostrea, which belong to the family Ostreidae and class Bivalvia. Their thick axon, thicker than any human nerves, is easier to start with. What are the different sources of air pollution? In the south-east coast mainly in the Palk Bay, and in the Gulf of Mannar the seasonal fishery of the squid is observed. (Wilson 2001, Grzimek 1972), Loligo forbesii moves through the water by adjusting buoyancy through gas exchange, as well as by using jet propulsion through mantle contractions. The people of United States, Japan and Southern Australia consume a large amount of scallop meats. The long-finned squid lives approximately 1-2 years in or out of captivity, three years at the most. The meat is of good quality and demands a high price in the markets. They are characterized by short life span, high human consumption and high market price. What is the reserve food material in red algae? These squid possess colors and stripes; colors change during the escape mechanisms to a pink, red, or brown hue. animals which must use heat acquired from the environment and behavioral adaptations to regulate body temperature. for the human consumption of the meat.

Establishing subgenera within Loligo is subject of discussion because the characters other than the long "tail" — by which Alloteuthis is defined — are considered to be of small importance to separate subgenera (Vecchione et al., 1998). Loligo forbesii is also used as fish bait and fish-meal production in the Mediterranean. The edible squids are predominantly caught by Mediterranean’s and south-east Asian countries which are traditionally the major consumers.
