    Small coastline of Goa harbours diverse species of molluscan shells. Goa has both sandy beaches as well as rocky shorelines. Plentiful shells are seen scattered on many secluded beaches in Goa. The objective of this book is to introduce shell heritage and to inculcate and encourage curiosity and scientific interest, not just among conchologists but also local and tourist beach goers. With this in focus, the photographs of the shells presented in this book are, as far as possible, ‘in situ’ photographs of shells in the same condition as actually found on the beaches of Goa. It is sincerely expected that this chapter serves as a guide for identification and classification of the shells of Goa.
