Thinking about Geoducks

Seth with small geoducks collected in June. I'll post results of our efforts in a few days, but these photos give some idea of their appearance. They don't show, however, the foot that extends out from the bottom of the shell until the clam breast gets a massage, which convinces the clam to pull the foot in & that allows one to extract it from the sand. Next, the neck is retracted in these photos -- its really much longer before they are captured. Posted by Hello
