The Sam's Cove anti-crab fence. This low wire fence, specially designed by clam investigations at Boothbay Harbor Laboratory to exclude predatory green crabs from soft clam producing flats, had been maintained for over five years at the time of this photograph. The fence encloses 3-4 acres and is over 500 feet in circumference.
