Each year dozens of quahoggers, under the aegis of the DEM and Narragansett Bay Commission, help move quahogs from polluted areas to clean state-monitored management areas. After about half a year, during which the quahogs filter out accumulated pollutants and make baby quahogs, they'll be legal to harvest.
