Geoduck Clams

People eat these things.


From Fisheries Canada: The geoduck (pronounced gooey duck) clam is a member of the Phylum Mollusca... Although a few individuals weigh up to 4.5 kg (10 lbs.), the average whole body wet weight is about 1kg. (2.2 lbs.) with an average shell length of about 195 mm (7 inches) (Harbo 1997). To the first-time observer, this clam could be considered as rather grotesque because its shell is not capable of encompassing the huge body.



From NOAA.GOV: The geoduck (pronounced gooey-duck) clam caught in Northwest Pacific waters, weighs an average three pounds and yields over a pound of flavorful meat.
Don't know about you, but I've got a sudden hankerin' for some geoduck!

    It's just a well-endowed clam, that's all.

    I just saw this clam for the first time today on the food network and it was leaking something white out of it making it look even more shall we say not clam like.

    I saw the same thing on the food network. I spewed out a white liquid all over the woman chef...not to mention the fact that she blanced it and took the "foreskin" off in a suggestive manner. I'll eat anything...except for this sick thing!

    ...regarding my post above. "It"...NOT "I" spewed out a white liquid. There are other channels for that.

    That is just wrong! When I think of clam I don't envision a large penis. My mind formulates something opposite.

    Maybe the symbolism is hermaphroditic then!

    if you can discard your naiive fear, then try one at a sushi bar - great sweet taste - I insist on not thinking about penises

    how can you not think of a penis....kinda exciting in a weird way.

     
  • At 3/11/2008 5:18 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

    I saw it on Dirty Jobs too.

    Can't say I've seen such a strange creature.
    Mud soaked penis in a clam shell. LOL!
    As for eating it --- not if Iknew what it was.
    If it was an "unknown" dish though and I ate it then found out later what -- I can't see any issues.

    wierd wierd creature.

    hehe -- just think girls --
    Might make a great pet! No complaints from it either and it can go for a looooooooonnngg time!

    Yea we got theese things in Washignton State... theese buggars dig down into the sand and when pressure pushes down on the sand above them, they squirt a long spout of water, sometimes going up 10 feet or more. Walk 10 feet and you will get soaked. Fun to play tag on theese infested beaches though! :]
