  • Giant clam    

    samoa_raceways2_b1Fisheries Division is supporting a giant clam reseeding programme throughout Samoa using hatchery raised Tridacna derasa clams. Villages involved in the Fisheries Extension Community-based Management Programme are provided with giant clam seeds for grow-out in their lagoons.

    There must be enhanced research in Samoa on clam's growth rate and survival as well as establishing appropriate farming sites.
