    People were talking about breeding clams on another forum and i thought I'd share these videos for the people who haven't seen them...

    Very interesting stuff here.
    Enjoy!

    Got to see some of those videos a few months ago when we saw Gerald Heslinga speak at NextWave here. He was a great speaker...or maybe it's cuz I'd wanted to see him speak for years LOL.

    Maybe it's just me being dumb, but when the narrator mentioned the 1hp air pump in part1, I just imagined a horse blowing air across the water. lol

    These videos are kinda cool...I think it's interesting how they do it, not much to it really.

    Thank you for sharing!! I saw a similar farm in Thailand in March.
    It was mainly a clown fish breeder, but bred everything you could imagine native to south asia/Indonesia. They kept larger breeds including clams in large almost still ponds. It was incredible to see. However i was heart broke seeing a 2 foot stingray in a very small tank (probably 300G) wanted to release it but would probably get the death penalty or prison over there :-/.
