Complete Title: 
Snails in the Chanda Beel area
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Through this study undertaken in the in the Modhumoti floodplain area, an attempt has been made to learn about the volume of snail harvesting, trends, marketing channels and the overall snail trade cycle. Since the demand for snails is now high, more and more people are becoming involved in its harvesting and it has become difficult to regenerate the resource base, which is already in a critical state. The total snail harvest, though not very large has registered gradual decline. If the current unregulated harvesting continues the commercial snail species pila globosa will become endangered within its own territory in the very near future.
