 Clam Identification Key
The most commonly encountered clams on King County's marine beaches are the manila clam, native littleneck, butter clam, cockle, horse clam, eastern softshell and macoma clams.
To tell the horse and softshell clams apart, hold the clams on their ends and see whether the outlines of both shells are the same.
Most clams passively filter the water to obtain their food while the macomas use their long (up to 18) inhalant siphon like a vacuum cleaner hose which they move around to suck up detritus from the surface of the substrate.

 Lower Cook Inlet Razor Clam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
The abundance of clams from 2.6 miles north of the Ninilchik River to 1 mile south of the river was estimated to be over 1.3 million clams 3 inches and greater in length in 2003.
Clams on a particular beach section are probably the progeny of clams from that and surrounding beaches so wide spread depletion of the clam stocks would have to occur before abundance would be impacted.
In addition, future clam research will focus on improving age determination by studying spawn timing, length of time before larval clams settle from the water column to beaches and the amount of growth that occurs during the first two years of life.

 Operation Clambake presents: The Clam FAQ
The clam's big problem was that there was a conflict between the hinge that wanted to open and the hinge that wanted to close.
After the clam came the 'Weeper' or the 'Boohoo', a mollusc that rolled in the surf for half a million years, pumping sea water out of its shell as it breathed, hence its name.
The clams are steamed, along with some vegetables (typically potatoes and maize) in a pit covered with sand.

 NYSG: Hard Clam Research Initiative
The Hard Clam Research Initiative was launched in October 1999 to investigate the population dynamics of hard clams in Long Island's south shore estuary.
While not stated explicitly, a critical point was that the funds should be used to answer fundamental questions about why clams are no longer flourishing in south shore areas, not to just pay for further transplanting, seeding, or culturing of clams.
It was in the late 1970's that hard clams became an intensive topic of NYSG research and outreach.

 WHOI : Oceanus : A Mysterious Disease Is Infecting Northeast Clam Beds   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Although she could diagnose infected clams, she couldn’t be sure that clams without symptoms were disease-free.
By this stage, the mucus is sometimes obvious on the edges of the shells, Smolowitz said, and the sound of the clams trying to close up is “like a million people grinding their teeth.” The force of the grinding often chips the shell margins.
These less hardy southern clams contracted the disease at a low threshold, and as they died, they may have raised QPX levels in the water high enough to make the native clams sick, too.
