Snail farming a survey of breeding management hygiene and parasitism of the garden snail helix aspersa mueller



Journal of Molluscan Studies 54(2): 209-214



ISSN/ISBN: 0260-1230

Fifteen farms in 1984 and twenty in 1985 were investigated for breeding management, hygiene and parasitism. Farm hygiene did not seem to play an important role on the breeding performances in our samples. Nematodes were the most frequent parasites: Alloionema appendiculatum were equally prevalent among juvenile and adult snails whereas Angiostoma aspersa and Nemhelix bakeri were found mostly in reproductive adults. The presence of nematodes, assessed by coproculture, was negatively related to breeding performances.
