Shellfish aquaculture is good for the environment, economy and consumers. Cedar Key, a historic fishing village, has become a leading producer of farm-raised clams in less than two decades. Growing 175 million clams annually, this industry supports over 500 jobs and has an economic impact of $45 million.
