NEFSC 2002 Surfclam and Ocean Quahog Survey (DE0206, EK500)
The 2002 region-wide survey for Atlantic surfclam (Spisula solidissima) and Ocean Quahog (Arctica islandica) was conducted in continental shelf waters, from Delmarva Peninsula to Georges Bank aboard the FRV DELAWARE II. The survey, conducted by the NMFS Northeast Fisheries Science Center, provides indices of abundance and recruitment for both species. In addition, tows were made at 25 non-random sites during the survey to support on-going scientific studies.
