In this section, the focus is on softshell and stout razor clams. A brief description of the hard clam fishery in Maryland's portion of the Chesapeake Bay is also included here. A complete description of hard clam life history and populations will be included in a future Shellfish Program Monitoring webpage that will focus on shellfish in Maryland's coastal bays. The wedge clam will be added to this section if and when it enters the commercial fishery.
