Saving Singapore's giant clams
With their attractive shell exterior and meaty flesh, giant clams (family Tridacnidae) have been fished as food and for decorative purposes for hundreds of years. Present at an alarmingly low number on Singapore's reefs, researchers at the Marine Biology Laboratory of the NUS Department of Biological Sciences (DBS) are about to embark on an ambitious giant clam restocking programme. The project will be facilitated by NUS' own research vessel 'The Galaxea', which was launched recently.
