Florida Sea Grant
The Clam Farm Benefit Calculator allows Florida clam growers to make a simple estimation of the environmental benefits their farms provide annually to coastal waters. These benefits include nitrogen removal and carbon sequestration. With inputs of farm location and the number of clams harvested per year by grade size, this tool will provide an estimate of the economic value of the benefits that a clam grower's crop provides on an annual basis.
