Seafood carbon emissions tool Ocean quahog (Arctica islandica), Wild, System: Dredge, Notes: Fuel use estimates for quahog fisheries are based on a single source reporting fuel use for northeast US fisheries (Kitts et al., 2008). It is assumed that variance in fuel use is similar to that in other dredge fisheries. Estimates are lower than that of other mollusc fisheries, but similar to that observed for mussels.
