Abstract: Resident clam populations near the Native villages of Port Graham, Nanwalek, and Tatitlek will be re-established to restore diminished subsistence opportunities. The Qutekcak hatchery in Seward will annually provide about 800,000 juvenile littleneck clams, cockles and, if possible, butter clams for seeding. Historical information, local and agency expertise, and research will be used to identify areas to seed and methods used. Total seeded area will not exceed 5 hectares. In addition, beaches will be surveyed in Chenega and Ouzinkie for possible future seeding. Also, Eyak razor clams will be identified and work will be initiated to protect the existing clam populations from natural predators.
