Welcome to the Online Resource Guide for Florida Shellfish Aquaculture in Florida, a completely updated and redesigned website which replaces the Florida Shellfish Aquaculture Extension site.  This site provides, through the University of Florida/IFAS's Shellfish Aquaculture Extension Program (SAEP), information about clam farming and related activities for the general public, growers, and others involved in shellfish.  This includes updates on research and extension projects, current supplier lists, and state and national publications, such as the SAEP's newsletter, The Bivalve Bulletin.  Additional resources will be added over time, including pertinent ones from the former Florida Shellfish Aquaculture Extension website.

The mission of the extension program is to support and enhance environmentally and economically-sustainable shellfish aquaculture in Florida.  The industry produces over 150 million hard clams annually while providing hundreds of jobs in rural coastal communities.  The program addresses the needs of the industry through integration of applied research projects with outreach and educational efforts.
