The state of soft-shell clam (Mya arenaria) populations in three regions of eastern New Brunswick: Fs97-14/0286-2011E-PDF

"In 2006, the state of the soft-shell clam populations was investigated in three regions of New Brunswick: the Richibucto estuary, the Tabusintac estuary and Heron Island. Information was gathered concerning the whereabouts of soft-shell clam beds in these regions by interviewing local fishermen, fishery officers and NGOs. Three maps (one for each region) were produced to reflect this local knowledge. The productivity and stock status of clam beds in the Aldouane River (Richibucto region) was evaluated in more details, as a case study. This was done by mapping the location and size of clam beds using a GPS and taking samples from chosen clam beds. Some background information concerning the management of the soft-shell clam fishery, history of zone classifications, licenses issued and landing values over the years are also discussed in this report"--Abstract, p. vi.
