Shell repair after serious damage in Ensis leei (Bivalvia, Pharidae)
Basteria , Volume 82 - Issue 1-3 p. 33- 35
Heavily damaged and malformed shells of Ensis leei found on the Dutch coast are suggested to be due to commercial fishery on this species with a specialized dredge. All specimens smaller than 10 cm length are discarded and returned to the sea. Some may survive the damage and scavengers and repair their shell
