One female can produce , - 2,, eggs. Gathering cockles A. The greatest development of this industry is in Perak, where about 1, ha of the foreshore are under cockle culture. Harvesting begins when the cockles have attained a marketable size of mm. The gear used is a long-handled close-set wire scoop , usually operated by one person, who stands in a boat, extends the scoop as far as his reach allows, and draws it through the mud with a gentle, rocking motion, trapping the cockles, which are then deposited in the boat.
FAO's Yearbook of Fishery Statistics reports a range of yearly aquaculture production from around mt in to mt in China, Korea Rep. Thailand, Malaysia. Cockles A. Cockles consumption exceeds the local production every year. In addition, Thailand has been imported from Malaysia some thousands of metric Tons of cockles of commercial size and seed.
Cockles are usually cultivated on mud in the intertidal zone with a water salinity of around ppt. Used as food. Bibliography
Anadara granosa (Linnaeus, 1758)
Tegillarca granosa also known as Anadara granosa  is a species of ark clam known as the blood cockle or blood clam due to the red haemoglobin liquid inside the soft tissues. It is found throughout the Indo-Pacific region from the eastern coast of South Africa northwards and eastwards to Southeast Asia , Australia , Polynesia , and up to northern Japan. It lives mainly in the intertidal zone at one to two metres water depth, burrowed down into sand or mud. It has a high economic value as food, and it is kept in aquaculture. Some sources of blood cockle may not undergo the depuration process. Therefore, certain styles of preparation, such as the poaching commonly carried out in Shanghai, can leave many pathogens present.
