Captive breeding / propagation
The offspring of Cerithium echinatum are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Cerithium echinatum, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Cerithium echinatum, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
