Mainly during study observed that in December month the total number of Molluscan species is 50 while January month the number of Molluscan species is direct 28.from August to December pH was not shown any significant variation, while in January month pH was 4.3.average sea water pH is 7 to 8 neither acidic nor basic. For molluscan development, acidic sea water is not suitable for molluscan growth and development. (…)
