Tisbury family shellfishing day was a big success

- Danielle Ewart

In an event sponsored by the Tisbury Shellfish Department, more than 70 people turned up Saturday at Lagoon Pond near Wind’s Up to learn the skills necessary to rake clams and distinguish a littleneck from a cherrystone from a quahog. Tisbury shellfish constable Danielle Ewart said it was a lot of fun, and the kids and adults had a great time.

It was such a success that future events are expected, she said.
