Growing Soft Clams (Mya arenaria) commercially in the Commonwealth of Virginia was proposed with the objective to raise soft clams from 2 mm to market size in less than two years. Two different grow out methods were investigated. The first method was land based, reusing water from our existing shellfish nurse1y system. The second method consisted of trays deployed into open water on our leased grounds in the Ware River of Virginia.
