Our supporters

The Indian River Lagoon Clam Restoration Project (IRLCRP) is a grassroots organization dedicated to restoring the waters of the Indian River Lagoon. Founded by Captain Blair Wiggins, host of Addictive Fishing Television and Blair Wiggins Outdoors, IRLCRP aims to replenish the lagoon’s natural filtration system, which was devastated in the 1990s due to commercial overharvesting of clams.
