5 AAC 38.409. Gear for clams for Registration Area J

(a) A person may take razor clams by shovels and forks.

(b) A person may take hardshell clams by shovels and forks. In the portion of Registration Area J west of the longitude of Kilokak Rocks, a person may also take hardshell clams by hydraulic or mechanical clam diggers.

(c) A person who has obtained a permit from the commissioner under 5 AAC 38.050(b) may use a hydraulic or mechanical clam digger to take razor clams. A person may take razor claims under this subsection only west of the longitude of Kilokak Rocks.

(d) A person may take horse clams with dive gear while using a hand held manually operated water jet device that has a manual shut off valve and a nozzle with an inside diameter of seven-eighths inches or less. If the commissioner determines that the gear is being operated in a manner that wastes the resource, is destroying the resource, or causes damage to horse clams or other fishery resources, the commissioner may, by emergency order, close the fishing season and reopen a season in which the dive gear is modified or prohibited. For the purposes of this subsection, "horse clam" means the species tresus capax.
