Biology and Ecology of Edible Marine Bivalve Molluscs provides a plethora of first-hand information on the diversity, biology, and ecology of edible marine bivalve molluscs.

Marine bivalve molluscs play important roles in the marine ecosystems by filtering the water and serving as habitat and prey for a variety of sea life. Furthermore, by pumping large quantities of water through their bodies, they serve as good bio-indicators to monitor the health of the surrounding environment. This diverse group of species, estimated at about 9,200, inhabits virtually the entire world ocean, from the balmy tropics to the sub-zero Arctic, and from the deep ocean to sandy and rocky shorelines.

Among the marine bivalves, a total of 180 species (including mussels, oysters, scallops, cockles, and clams) have long been a part of the diet of coastal human populations. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration estimated the 2011 economic value of commercial bivalve mollusc harvesting at about $1 billion annually in the U.S., and the weight of the harvest was estimated at 153.6 million pounds. Many species of marine bivalves are also commercially important for other purposes, such as pearls and shells for jewellery and decoration.

This comprehensive book on the biology and ecology of edible marine bivalve molluscs covers the biology of edible marine bivalves; profiles about 180 species, providing information on their habitat, distribution, morphology, food and feeding, reproduction, conservation status, &c ; discusses their nutritional values; examines their pharmaceutical values; and looks at their diseases and parasites. This abundance of knowledge is presented in an easy-to-read style with informative illustrations.
