HARVEST PROFILE

This beach has been enhanced with oysters.

This beach is mostly sandy substrate and littleneck clam habitat is limited. There is a small patch of mixed sand and gravel near the west end of the beach that may have some native littleneck clams and Manila clams, but they are probably not abundant. There are some butter clams and horse clams available on the sandy areas of this beach.

There are some oysters available on this beach.
