Abstract: The growth and survival of juvenile carpet shell clams, Tapes decussatus, planted in autumn (October-April) and spring (April-October) in Sufa Lagoon near Izmir, Turkey, were compared. Clams of 20.39±0.24 mm were sown in October (Group I) and clams of 20.43±0.23 mm were sown in April (Group II). Seedlings were sown in plastic boxes at a density of 160 clam/m2. Temperature ranged 8-32oC, salinity 38-43‰, and chlorophyll a 4.04-30.93 μg/l. In six months, the clams in Group I reached 23.16 mm while the clams in Group II reached 24.02 mm (p<0.05). Survival was 80% in Group I and 77.5% in Group II (p>0.05).
