Introduced by settlers to Vancouver Island, and further developed as a clam fishery by middle of the 20th century. Now, live farmed manila clams are the gourmet clam of the Pacific coast. Their multicolor patterns and thin shell allow for quick preparation and delightful presentation. Ideal ingredient in pasta dishes, chowders, soups, or as main dish steamed, our live manila clams are as delicious as versatile. Ideal for restaurant’s menus, retailer’s seafood counter and live clam wholesalers.
Sustainable farmed for generations and hand dug on certified beaches. Our farmed manila clams are dug by hand at low tide, hand sorted, washed, and placed on cases before shipping to you via air freight. The manila clam case is packed in wetlock boxes of 25 lbs or 50 lbs. Smokey Bay exports live clams from the Pacific Northwest to multiple destinations in North America, Asia, and Europe.
