Abstract

The main objectives of the study were to estimate distribution, relative abundance and recruitment of surf clams along the Delmarva Peninsula and in areas of intense harvesting off the Virginia co~st. The project was a joint u~dertaking by the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS). Herein-after it is associated with the latter Institution to avoid confusion with an NMFS surf clam cruise in Virginia and North Carolina coastal waters in August, 1974.
