"An experimental gear permit was issued to the FV Lady Rosemary to use dredge gear to harvest clams off the Oregon coast. The main species of interest was razor clams, but other clams such as cockles and gapers were also explored. Primary objectives of the work were to (1) survey the nearshore Oregon coast for commercial quantities of clams and (2) determine effectiveness of a modified hydraulic dredge to harvest razor, gaper, and cockle clams."
