The geoduck is native to the west coast of North America. Geoduck are the largest burrowing clams with a large, meaty, light beige- dark brown siphon extending from an oval shell. The shell of the clam ranges from 15 centimetres (5.9 in) to over 20 centimetres (7.9 in) in length, but the extremely long siphons make the clam itself much longer than this: the “neck” or siphons alone can be 1 metre (3.3 ft) in length. As adults they have very few predators other than humans.
Geoduck siphon meat has a sweet, fresh sea flavour and a crunchy texture. It is best when eaten either raw (in sushi or sashimi) or when very quickly cooked (as in a stir fry).
Geoduck is available:
● Flash-frozen and vacuum
● Dried body meat
