Fun Facts About Clams

Hello clam lovers!  I'm back with some facts you may not know about clams:
  1. The biggest clam can grow up to six feet in diameter!  What a meal that would be.
  2. The word "clam" is actually short for a longer Italian word, "clamantino"!
  3. Did you know that there are more than 7 different varieties of clams?
  4. Clams are the most salt-succulent of the molluscs, and do not need much/any salt added if you are planning to eat them (which you should)
  5. Clam trawlers usually trawl in pairs to mitigate risk.
  6. Finding a boot in with recently-dredged clams is actually a sign of good luck -- this is largely due to the fact that clams have a foot, and the boot is therefore seen as a sacrifice from the clams.
  7. Clams have a foot, which should be its own fact.
