The method of evaluation of individual development stability of the bivalve mollusk Anadara inaequivalvis (Bruguiere, 1789) in the Black Sea was evaluated by analysis its shells fluctuating asymmetry. Difference of fluctuating asymmetry degree between samples from different locations was revealed. Index of fluctuating asymmetry was shown to be informative and promising for use in environmental studies.
