Invertebrates marine molluscs have significant commercial applications; for instance as a source of food ornaments And Production Of Lime A production of lime A species of molluscs have also been reported to act as scavengers in cleaning the nvironment and pollution indicators Recently many molluscan species have been identified as a potential source of secondary metabolites having environment and pollution indicators Recently many molluscan species have been identified as a potential source of secondary metabolites having wide range of pharmaceutical applicationsThis should be a standard reference for students researchers And Teachers Of Disciplines teachers of disciplines as Pharmacy Fisheries Science Marine Biology Life Sciences Biotechnology and Biochemistry as well as a valuable guide for pharmaceutical companies involved in the development of new drugs from marine molluscs. .
