Mollusc aquaculture 2005

13.468 million tonnes 
11.4 billion $


O = Ostreidae; P = Pectinidae; S = Solecurtidae; V = Veneridae; M = Mytilidae. "Other" groups represent 14 % of world mollusc aquaculture.

Clams and other Veneridae have a relatively higher value than the proportion of production they represent, in the same way as scallops. Mussels on the other hand have a lower commercial value.
