Trochus is a story of one man's dream to make an equitable life for himself and his family. After being forced out of his previous livelihood, Warren Hill recovers a wrecked vessel considered to be near-unsalvageable, intending to transform it into a vessel tailor-made for collecting trochus shells off the Queensland coast.   This year 15 tonnes of trochus shell will be exported to Italy for around $9 a kilogram. To keep the fishery sustainable, the One Arm Point community also .

Trochus is a genus of medium-sized to very large sea are marine gastropod molluscs in the family Trochidae, the top snails.. Trochus niloticus, for example, is a very large (up to 13 cm) Indo-Pacific top shell, which has a very thick inner layer of species is commercially exploited to make mother of pearl buttons, mother of pearl beads, pendants and so : Gastropoda. Members of this genus Acropora have a low resistance and low tolerance to bleaching and disease, and are slow to recover. These species is found typically in shallow water and are particularly vulnerable to bleaching and human impacts. Acropora species in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands were once very abundant, but in recent decades have remained at low levels of abundance, with no signs of Author: P.T. Rajan.

Behaviour and time spent active and inactive are key factors in animal ecology, with important consequences for bioenergetics. For the first time, here, we equipped the gastropod Tectus (= Trochus) niloticus with accelerometers to describe activity rhythms at two sites in the Southwest Pacific with different temperature regimes: New Caledonia and Vanuatu.
