Geoduck Clam Mariculture Site Survey Cruise Report
Marc Pritchett

In 2002 HB 208 required the Alaska Department of Natural Resources to identify, and offer for lease at auction, 90 sites suitable for aquatic farming, including 10 sites for geoduck and other subtidal culture species. In August 2003 the Alaska Department of Fish and Game conducted dive surveys at 11 locations to assess their suitability as geoduck farm sites. This document provides survey details.
