Heliciculture or snail farming – comparatively new area of agricultural production. Heliciculture is also a crucial contribution to nature protection, because exclude the depletion of natural reserves of snails. Another reason of interest in artificial breeding of snail is high scale of industrial pollution of nature in modern world. The possibility of breeding of snails not only with high food characteristics, but free from different pollution (heavy metals, for instance, pesticides and others) exists only under control and in artificial conditions.
