Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Josh Clauss. Working in shellfishing and aquaculture for 6 years, on many different levels; I've worked in a hatchery, in the nursery, and out on the farm, as well as digging and dredging. I have worked with shellfish commercially and scientifically. Currently, I am employed by Cornell Cooperative Extension's Bay Scallop Restoration Project, as an aquaculturalist and a boat captain. I earned a bachelors degree in Biology from Lynn University in Boca Raton, Florida. I am an avid fisherman, surfer, sailor. I'm always on the water and I love shellfish.
