Roman snail is a valuable food resource, which has only recently came into use in food industry in the Kaliningrad Region. To establish the rational basis for its commercial use, it is necessary to gather data regarding biological and ecological features, mostly reproductive properties of the populations which inhabit this territory. The present investigation has been carried out to study the reproductive biology of the Roman snail over a 4-year-period, with a full-range analysis of the data obtained. Reproductive peculiarities are considered for the populations inhabiting different environmental and geographical areas of the region. It became possible to identify the life conditions of the local populations of H. pomatia.
