Abstract
    A photographic method for surveying softshell clam, Mya arenaria beds is described and evaluated. The equipment, which includes an underwater camera affixed to an aluminum frame, is diver-operated and positioned during sampling. Some preliminary results concerning spacial arrangements in juvenile and adult beds are discussed.
