Summary

This impact assessment of giant clam research in
the Indo-Pacific region is a valuable historical
compendium of the ACIAR-sponsored work undertaken
over 25 years. The authors have drawn together
a wide-ranging evaluation of the work from biological,
ecological and socioeconomic perspectives. There is
no doubt that the work has led to the establishment
of a vast body of knowledge about giant clam biology,
markets, and culturing techniques that has contributed
to ongoing efforts to conserve the species and continued
research capacity in the Indo-Pacific.
