  1. First Spawn of Clams Scheduled at Shellfish Hatchery

    January 25, 2022 - January 28, 2022
    @
    Town of Hempstead Shellfish Hatchery

    After spending six weeks in the conditioning tank feeding on a mixed diet of diatoms and flagellate algae, the Town's adult broodstock clams are ready to spawn. The shellfish hatchery's staff will spend the next several days slowly warming the water temperature of the spawning tank, making it feel like spring, to manipulate these adult clams into releasing their eggs. A good spawn can result in a release of over 100,000,000 clam eggs! The eggs will be collected, fertilized, and hatched within the Town's aquaculture facility. The clams will be raised from microscopic free swimming larvae all the way to seedling size of about 20mm. This happens in the Town's shellfish facilities between January and November.
