Director: Dan Griffin | Producer: GG Films
Focus Years: 2009 | Country: United States
Dr. Steve Palumbi takes the viewer on a tour of a giant clam farm on a remote Fijian island. Giant clams are increasingly rare on Fijiâ€™s coral reefs. They are big, brightly colored, unable to run away â€¦ and tasty. Fijians hope that farming giant clams can help to repopulate reefs by transplanting them onto protected reefs. Once enough calms have been transplanted, they can naturally repopulate the surrounding area. â€œGrowing a Giant Clamâ€ is part of a series of videos on the oceans.
