Biochemical composition of different body parts of Babylonia spirata (L) in various size groups was studied. Among the body parts, gonad and digestive gland showed highest biochemical composition and acts as a storage site followed by foot and exhibited a distinct seasonal cycle. The size groups of 40 – 45 mm and 45-50 mm animals showed higher values of biochemical components. Maximum protein value of 69.09 % was recorded in May 1998 in the size group of 50-55 mm and the highest carbohydrate value of 9.20 % was recorded in the 50-55 mm size group. The maximum lipid value of 9.5 % was recorded in the 50-55 mm size group animals.
