Fishery Resource Grant FRG 1999-30
The purpose of the grant project was to see if there would be less maintenance involved using the fence system vs. nets on the bottom and, also whether the clams in the fence system would grow larger than the clams under the nets on the bottom because they would be less restricted by sand building up on top of them.
