"Home of the Jersey Clam"

Spawning Success!

After  an initial slow beginning, we had a successful spawn yesterday. The larval clams are just a day old and swimming and enjoying their first meal of algae. I took some video and pictures under the microscope today and plan on uploading it as soon as I get a chance. I’m actually heading back to the hatchery right now to get a kalwall ready to seed with algae for tomorrow. If you havent already, you can see some great pictures of  the larval clams from last year in my slideshow.
