From the Author

For about 40 years, the author has identified over 2200 shellfish and snails.
This book is a collection of shellfish that have been collected from Oita city and its surrounding waters.
The production of this list began some time ago, and since then, some of the listed shellfish have disappeared.
Classifying all of the shellfish has been very difficult. The author did not compile this list alone, he had a great deal of help from many friends.
He wishes to thank them for all of their help.
