During 2009 and 2010, DEI assisted Mr. Joseph Porada with a number of field experiments designed to evaluate grow-out conditions for cultured hard clam seed as part of a project for USDA-SBIR Phase I. This work was completed using the first-ever quahog lease in eastern Maine. It evaluated both subtidal and intertidal quahog grow-out methods for farmed quahogs in eastern Maine.
