"Home of the Jersey Clam"

The Hatchery

Due to the decline of naturally occurring hard clams in New Jersey’s waters, aquaculture has evolved to maintain and sustain the local hard clam (Mercenaria mercenaria) populations in our bays.  Our hatchery produces the best tasting clams around.  Give us a try.   Call us for more information if you are interested in purchasing clam seed.

 

 

 

Below is a video taken through a microscope in our hatchery of a clam egg just after it was fertilized. Note the sperm swimming around it.
