The effects of storage temperatures and times on the microbiological quality and safety of hard-shelled quahog clams (Mercenaria mercenaria) were examined. Samples were stored at four different incubation temperatures (3.3, 7.2, 10.0, and 12.8 degrees C) for a period of 3 weeks, following their harvest from summer growing waters (> or = 27 degrees C) and(More)
