First battered by winds, then ripped by the ocean, a stretch of the New Jersey Shore is now choking on the stench of 150,000,000 dying clams - the aromatic aftermath of this month's devastating coastal storm. And folks from Longport to Atlantic City are raising their own stink about the millions of unwanted guests who have overstayed their welcome. After the Jan. 4 storm that crashed over the Shore, beaches on Absecon Island were knee-deep in clams, most very much alive. For the first week, the shellfish merely posed an aesthetic problem.

Life hasn't been the same for David Powell since a ton of clams fell on him in February. His attorney says Powell has been out of work, his medical bills are mounting and he's got a pain in his lower back that won't quit. And so yesterday, Powell, a man in his early 20s from Erma, Cape May County, filed suit in federal court in Camden citing the Jones Act, a law governing maritime matters. The suit names Boat Gulf Air Inc., the company that owns the Gulf Air, a clamming boat.

The three fishermen slowly guided their boat through the choppy water of Barnegat Bay, searching for the right spot to deposit their cargo of shellfish. "Right here," said Glenn Tilden, who was piloting the craft. Tilden's co-workers hoisted the heavy bags of clams to the side of the boat. They had spent the morning digging the clams from the mud of Raritan Bay, 30 miles to the north, and now they were casting them overboard again. The clams sank like rocks into the dark water.

Maryland watermen are trying to figure out why clams they pull from the Chesapeake Bay have high levels of bacteria when they hit New England markets. Since June, health officials in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York have embargoed about a dozen Maryland seafood dealers because tests showed high bacteria levels in the clams and could lead to sickness in humans. "It's a mystery. It could be on this end. It could be on that end," said Danny Elburn, 30, a Rock Hall, Md., seafood dealer whose clams have been banned in Maine and Massachusetts.

SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. - As vacationers began leaving the Shore over the weekend, fleeing a storm that never materialized, Mike Monichetti realized that he had 42,000 clams that weren't going to sell themselves. Monichetti, owner of Mike's Seafood & Dock, put the word out: buy 50, get 50 free. The clams started going pretty fast after that, he said, with many customers buying them by the hundreds with plans to have "storm parties. " "Did I lose money? Yeah," Monichetti said Monday. "Did I feel good doing it?

In a biology lab a few hundred yards from this town's famous Civil War battlefields, a scientist is feeding clams Prozac. Peter Fong has found that when clams are under the influence of the antidepression medicine, they go into reproductive overdrive. Within a few hours, out pop baby clams. The phenomenon is not unique to the fingernail clams that thrive in the creek that runs through this town's famous battlefields. When Fong, a biologist at Gettysburg College, feeds Prozac to another species - zebra mussels - they spew sperm and eggs all over the place.
