  • Description:
    With financial support from the Maine Sea Grant College Program, the Downeast Institute (DEI) and theUniversity of Maine at Machias (UMM) have partnered with nine municipal shellfish programs spanning thecoast of Maine to measure densities of soft-shell clams recruiting to mudflats. During 2020 and 2021, clamrecruitment on two intertidal flats in each community is being quantified to better understand local,regional, and coastwide trends in clam production. The information collected from this Soft-Shell ClamRecruitment Monitoring Network will provide state and local shellfish managers with information to betterequip them for the challenges of sustaining and/or enhancing clam populations in a dramatically changingmarine environment.Thi​s report provides information about the Clam Recruitment Monitoring Network’s study sites, design, andsampling process. It also details results of an initial baseline survey measuring clam densities and sizes thatwas conducted at all 18 study sites in May 2020, the same time when predator protected units (recruitmentbox​es) were deployed and installed at each flat.
