We planted on very low point of the beach so it goes underwater very quickly. The ferries were very busy so I got out there alter than anticipated. I cut open a quarter of the tubes for thorough inspections. I checked another 50% without cutting open the tubes because the tide was coming in quickly, but it was difficult to see anything with the mesh shadows.
3 zip-ties on each mesh tube were hard to cut off (return with more people!)
In the tubes:
3-4 crabs (up to 3 inches big)
Many of the tubs had crabs the crabs were crawling in and out of
Difficult to tell if holes are geoduck or cockles
Would recommend coming back with the intention of digging them up to be sure of geoduck survival
