Unfortunately, our internship program has run out of funding and will have to shut down. Our instructional/educational video “How To Quahaug” can still be viewed at our YouTube site. Please click on the YouTube logo below. If you have questions concerning shellfishing (and getting involved in commercial shellfishing) send us an email at the above email address.

Thank You

Important note for future young shellfishers:  If you were born on or after January 1, 1986 you must pass a boating safety course to operate most vessels in Rhode Island.  See online links for more information.

In collaboration with the Rhode Island Shell Fisherman’s Association, our kitchens are featuring Top Neck Clams all summer long to promote this under-utilized, abundant and sustainable local bivalve. Available at Hemenway’s, The Mooring and TRIO

Rhode Island Shell Fisherman’s Association & the Newport Restaurant Group

This is a great opportunity for Rhode Island fisherman, the local economy, community, and of course the diners who get to enjoy another great sustainable food product from our Bay that would otherwise be under-utilized and perhaps undiscovered.
