Abstract: The green snail, Turbo marmoratus, was first introduced to Tonga from Vanuatu in 1993, to create a new fishery of this commercially valuable species. Fifty live green snails were transported by air on August 8, 1993. The flight from Vanuatu to Tonga took seventeen hours and twenty minutes and the survival rate of the snails was 100% one week later (Fa'anunu and Sone, 1994).
