Abstract
    Culture of 75 Tridacna squamosa was initiated with a view to restock depleted populations of giant clam in Indonesia. Larvae of T. squamosa were obtainedthrough induced spawning of the broodstocks by injection of serotonin. The pelagic larvae spent 16 days as trochophore, veliger, and pediveliger larvae before metamorphosing into juveniles. Unfortunately, the survival rate of the larvae reared under laboratory condition was very low, probably because of poor water quality.
