Video of clam growth tracking project

June 24th, 2009 by eoconnell

Two new videos of the tribe’s shellfish growth tracking project are posted here.

Tribal biologists are numbering clams with tiny numbered red tags and by simply writing on them.  Clam growth is typically measured by randomly surveying clams on a beach, but that technique isn’t very exact.

You can also hear about the project here.
