Abstract: Mangrove influenced estuarine habits in the tropics are favor the settlement of oysters and their larval stages, which protect them from strong waves and speedy currents. Shell structure in Bivalves forms an important protective system. Description of the relationship between shell and soft body characteristics are essential in understanding ecological variations and productivity of oyster population. A total number of 627 oyster specimens were collected from different locations in Goa as case study for the tropical estuaries and studied for their allometric relationships. Data described in the present document could be of importance in monitoring the health of natural oyster beds. It also serves a baseline for planning sustainable management and understanding the aquaculture potential of Crassostrea spp. in mangrove influenced estuarine habitats.
