From May 31st through June 1st, the Bureau of Marine Resources (BMR) established five giant clam farms along the coast of Kayangel State to support the efforts of the Northern Reef Fisheries Cooperative.  Each of the five farmers was given 1,000 Hippopus hippopus, commonly known as Duadeb or Bear Paw Giant Clam, at two-years old and approximately 6-10 centimeters in size.  The farmers also received 200 Tridacna derasa, commonly known as Kism or Smooth Giant Clam, at 15-months old and approximately 4 centimeters in size.
