Abstractfrom the abstract and discussion, "The importance of Great South Bay to New York lies in the fact that at one time it was the largest single producer of hard clams (Mercenaria mercenaria) in the world. In 1976 it produced more hard clams than the rest of the Atlantic coast combined. Since then, production has steadily declined to less than half of the 1976 value. . .Since by means of the rationale described herein, the probability of setting on prescribed areas will be maximized, it seems to us that predator reduction has considerable merit as a next step in hard clam management. . ."
