HOW DO I SCHEDULE DELIVERY?

You will be asked on the order form for your preferred delivery date. As this delivery date given on your order form approaches you should be in contact with us at the hatchery. In many cases, we will notify you 2 weeks to a 1 month before your seed shall be ready, however, if you do not hear from us and you are ready, don’t hesitate to contact us at carolina@seaventuresgroup.com.  We understand the inconsistent nature of weather, and try to work with our seed customers so they are able to take proper care of the clams when they arrive.

HOW DO YOU SHIP THE SEED?

Local: For local Florida customers we have a weekly delivery route that comes every Tuesday to Cedar Key, Florida. Other Florida Customers that are not on that route will need to pay for UPS shipping. 

Out of State: We ship our seed using UPS overnight shipping service. The clams are wrapped in a drain sleeve or an onion sack depending on the size to hold them all together and we drain them as much as possible to get rid of excess moisture. We carefully pack the seed in a cooler so that it does not come into contact with the gel packs which are on the bottom of the insulated shipping container. Shipping costs are passed along to the customer, however, Seaventure Clam Co. will pay for the pathology report if required by the state we are shipping to.

WHICH STATES ARE WE PERMITTED TO SHIP TO?

Seaventure Clam Co. is permitted to ship Mercenaria mercenaria hard clams to the following states which we do business with:
 

  • Georgia

  • South Carolina

  • North Carolina

  • Maryland 

  • New Jersey

  • Rhode Island

  • New Hampshire

DO I NEED A PATHOLOGY REPORT?

If you are ordering seed from outside of the state of Florida it is required to have proof of health on the animals. Seaventure Clam Co. will run a pathology report on its animals before shipping to ensure we are complying with state importation laws. We take on the costs associated with running a pathology report and typically use our contacts at Harbor Branch to run pathology.
