The Shellfish Program provides both shellfish harvest management and enhancement services to Tribal members.  Some of the activities include:

•Providing technical analysis for negotiation for 8 shellfish species’ harvest agreements and intertribal allocation agreements each year between Suquamish, other Tribes and the State of Washington

•Conducting geoduck and intertidal clam population surveys

•Assessing crab condition to limit harvest of soft crab

•Assessing size, sex, & condition of shrimp prior to commercial fisheries to protect the long-term health of the population

•Scheduling of over 50 commercial shellfish openings

•Monitoring harvest and accounting for catch in all shellfish fisheries

•Actively coordinating tideland lease agreements which allows the Tribe to enhance and harvest manila clams on private properties within Dyes Inlet basin

•Testing for PSP biotoxin and monitoring water quality.
