by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Machiasport is once again one of the state’s top clamming towns and the most productive in Washington County. 

Machiasport is Maine’s fifth-most productive softshell clam port behind Brunswick, Waldoboro, Freeport, and Scarborough, with 453,661 pounds of softshell clams landed at a value of $1.462 million, according to 2021 landings data — the pounds caught and dollar value of a fishery.
