RI Shellfishmen’s Association Public Enhancement Seeding Program

The Rhode Island Shellfishermen’s Association (RISA) grow baby clams (quahogs) in an upweller in Warwick. These clams are released into the Bay as a public enhancement of shellfish effort to provide clams for residents and visitors to harvest recreationally. This RISA effort is funded and supported entirely by the association and relies on volunteer shellfishermen to tend and seed the clams.
