The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander featured a story on Downeast Institute’s upcoming field sampling to determine how much clam recruitment is occuring on mudflats downeast, especially in the Frenchman Bay region, how fast those clam recruits grow, and how many survive their first year of life. This work, part of the Clam Recruitment Monitoring Network, partners with the Frenchman’s Bay Regional Shellfish Committee to better understand intertidal ecology and clam harvest trends.

The article, written by Malachy Flynn, is titled, “Researchers study clam spawning rates in region“.
