I was wondering if anyone knows of some areas to dig clams, i live in the annapolis valley but make it up to hansport area regularly. These clams would be for eating so a non-poluted area is a must. Its been years since ive been digging for clams and would love to get out this summer.


Thanks

Hey there,
First thing I'd do is contact DFO, and ask them the current order of closure in your area....
Having said that, although I'm not in your area....I usually venture east of HRM, after a phone call to confirm no shellfish closures.

Hopefully someone in your area and a NSF member will give you some tips on where to go ;)

Regards,

Tom

Was just looking on dfo website to look for closed areas. The gulf area seems to update their site but can't find it for the maritimes site. Any ideas? You would think this would be something they would want to make easily accessible.

I'd like to take my little girl clam digging as well - I'm sure she'd love it. I haven't dug since I was a child but have fond memories of it. Incidentally, I was at DFO today, however the lady at the counter wasn't much help with information on closures. If anyone could point out an area which is open and where clamming could be done that would be great. Thanks, J.

Makes one wonder what the "FO" in "DFO" really stands for..

LOL,

Any fool can hook a dog with fly or spinning gear. I'm proud to announce that I hooked one while ice fishing.

This was all I could find in print http://www.dfo-mpo.g...-presse-eng.htm
Somewhere on their site it does say to call the local DFO office for up to date info ---> http://www.dfo-mpo.g...ontacts-eng.htm

Also be aware that their are size limits on what you can keep as well as quantity too --->

Hi;

You might want to call the Canadian Food Inspection Agency in Dartmouth. They are usually up to date on closures and so forth. see--
