OVER 325,000 CLAMS RELEASED

The IRL Clam Project is moving fast releasing over 2 million clams into the Indian River this summer. The Clam Team gathered at River Rocks in Rockledge, Florida to release 60,000 one inch clams. These new clams were raised in St. Augustine at Whitney Labs and will join the 275,000 clams that were released earlier. The bi-valves will begin filtering and improving the water quality of the Indian River. The clam team had all members on hand including Whitney Labs ,  CCA Florida , FWC and MRC to name a few. Capt Blair Wiggins from Addictive Fishing TV and his camera crew were on hand to document the days activities and filed this video report .
