Man Lobbies for Clam Farm off Jamestown, RI
January 24, 2012
Jamestown Press: Phil Larson wants to plant a small oyster farm in Narragansett Bay, and he has applied for a state aquaculture permit to grow shellfish—Eastern oysters, hard clams and soft-shelled clams—in Sheffield Cove [in Jamestown, Rhode Island]. The farm is an educational venture and will teach school children and the public about biodiversity, he said.
“My plan proposes to grow the oysters using the floating bag system and growing clams on the bottom beneath the bags under protective netting,” he wrote in the proposal.
