Abstract
    The feasibility of predicting hard clam abundance in a sample area from subsamples collected with a hydraulic escalator was investigated. Seven experimental plots, each about 1/2 acre in size, were sampled and then completely harvested. The error for the difference between estimated abundance and total catch varied from 0 to 7.6 percent.
