Abstract

A survey of the surf clam@pisula solidissima) in the nearshore area along the Delmarva Peninsula and further offshore from Cape Henry to upper North Carolina was conducted from 4 October, 1974 through 15 October, 1974. The project is a joint undertaking by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMF'S) and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS). A total of 138 sites were sampled with a hydraulic tow dredge and, in addition, a benthic sample for juvenile clams were obtained at each site with a Smith-MacIntyre sampler.
