HOW DO I ORDER SEED?
Either download an order form and fill it out and mail to us with your check, or fill out our digital order form by clicking the yellow "2020 Seed Order Form Button" in the top right corner and mail your check separately. Make sure that all of your contact information is correct. Sign the form and send it in with a 20% deposit. For example, the deposit for 1,000,000 clams at 1.0 mm would be 1,000 x $4 (per 1,000) x .2 = $800. Our preferred method is that you send a paper copy of your seed order form with your 20% deposit check. We prioritize and fulfill seed orders with deposits first, and get to seed orders without deposits only after fulfilling all orders that have a deposit. Please mail your check and order form to: Seaventure Clam Co., 5600 US 1 North, Fort Pierce, FL 34956.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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?
Except for customers close enough to pick up their seed at the hatchery or customers that are serviced by our weekly delivery route to Cedar Key, we ship our seed using FedEx overnight. The clams are wrapped in drain sleeve 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, and so that it does not come into contact with the gel packs which are on the bottom of the insulated shipping container.
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.
