Presentation from 2017 joint conference between the Pacific Coast Shellfish Growers Association and the Pacific Coast chapter of the National Shellfisheries Association. In this project we used proteomics to assess geoduck physiology between environments in Puget Sound and Willapa Bay Washington. Questions include: 1) How does protein abundance differ between geoduck outplanted in different sites? 2) How do environmental differences correspond to physiological differences? 3) Which proteins can we use to monitor physiology, and assess site suitability for geoduck farming and conservation?
