Background: Culture and sale of petite surf clams (1.5-2”) was recently authorized by Mass. Division of Marine Fisheries. For the last two years, ARC Hatchery, the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension and Sea Grant have been perfecting surf clam seed production and holding field trials of surf clam culture using different gear types and growing areas. The workshop will cover research results, including some initial market feedback, and there will be plenty of time for Q&A.
