Abstract
    In 2006 mollusc aquaculture production in Brazil amounted to about 17 000 tonnes with the brown mussel, Perna perna, on top of the list (13 000 tonnes) followed by the Japanese oyster, Crassostrea gigas (3 500 tonnes). Scallop farming (Nodipetcen nodosus) is a fairly recent activity. The main constrains of the industry include the difficulty to access natural resources, lack of sanitary controls, old farming technologies, poor extension services and limited knowledge of native species with farming potential. At present 77 municipalities in 11 states are developing local mariculture development plans to address sustainable development of bivalve culture. In 2005 the federal government created the National Committee on Bivalve Molluscs Sanitary Control to enhance local bivalve consumption and export.
