Check out this amazing bivalve harvested from the million pounds on Monday!
Anyone have an id?

Looks like a Chama sp. (Jewelbox Clam) - probably either C. brassica, C. macerophylla, or C. pellucida. Out of the three, my guess would be the Leafy Jewelbox Clam, C. macerophylla, though I can't say for certain.

Folks, we are still 2 harvests behind schedule due to waves and poor visibility in strong currents. Orders are fulfilled as soon as possible.
As of today, booking air cargo for December 8th.

Howdy @liverock ! Happy Thanksgiving to you.

We didn't see this gem until unloading...visibility was 6" that day.
 

Does it matter to you whether your fish are captive-bred or wild caught?
