Abstract

Meretrix sp. or well known as asiatic hard clam has a significant ecological role in the estuary ecosystem. Besides, they are also traded and consumed by people. Further studies are needed to analyze their morphological and ecological aspects to support the potency analysis of this clam. This study aimed to analyze the variation of Meretrix sp. found in Bancaran Estuary located in Madura Indonesia. The samples were collected randomly by handpicking during the low tide. Identification was carried out based on morphological characters. Morphometry parameters were measured by using a. caliper. Data was analyzed descriptive-quantitatively. The results of this study revealed that there were five morphological variations of Meretrix sp, which is found in Bancaran Madura. Therefore, further study on the potency or Meretrix sp. from this region as well as the molecular studies regarding the variations are needed.
