Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund
Chief Scientist Comments: This project should provide a lasting legacy of the potential for clam restoration and aquaculture in Alaska. The grow-out portion of this project has had some problems, but is designed in a way that should yield some useful information. The additional funding request is quite modest given the size of the project.

Executive Director Recommendation: Fund
Executive Director Comments: This small amount of additional funding will allow for proper completion of the final report on this multi-year project, which has worked to enhance local clam populations as replacements for subsistence resources injured by the oil spill. Trustee Council funding support was provided for this project each year FY 95 through FY 99.
