What Is Pearl Farming

Pearl oysters are farmed in a number of countries in the world in the production of cultured pearls. However, important production is limited to a few countries. Since its beginnings in the early 20th century pearl farming has come a long way and turned into a billion dollar industry at a retail level. This section gives an overview of the different regions in which pearl oysters are farmed, visualised in the form of a world map of cultured pearl farming areas. From the birth of larvae to harvesting a quality cultured pearl usually takes a number of years, a multitude of meticulous processes and steps are required to achieve this. Ecological and socio-economic factors are central to producing high-quality cultured pearls.

Why To Consider Growing Pearls

Pearls from India are known and admired all over the world as the finest of ‘Oriental Pearls’ and have been in high demand. However natural pearl resources in India as in other parts of the world have depleted and pearl fishery was stopped in India about four decades ago. There is a huge gap between production and demand and the only option left is culture of pearls.

Key Considerations


The biological parameters need to be checked before initiation of pearl culture including water quality, water source, water depth, substratum type, nutrient load, temperature and superior quality of recipient as well as donor mussels.



Site selection has to be convenient for operational activities.
Mussels collected from the wild are ideal, however pathological parameters of the indoor produced animals need attention prior to selection.


Pearl culture demands various ancillary activities that require appropriate attentions viz. mussel collection, implantation, nucleus preparation, culture unit fabrication, farm management and harvesting.


Large pearls have superior value.
The product should have a steady market avenue for better remuneration.
