Has anyone tested these clams for fire retardant from childrens clothing and furniture? Drugs and household cleaning chemicals from sewer discharge? Round Up and others chemicals from farming including manure residue? The list of crap fed to clams these days is endless. I haven't eaten clams for years. Everything ends up in the sea.

Add micro plastics to that list.

 I'll bet the recreational diggers aren't the problem... sounds like the commercial diggers are.

Green crabs just don't have any more elves to feed on so they now feed on clams. I use to like to fish for Brown trout and elves  But there are so many elves seines in the way I had to find another place to fish from shore...

maybe if the commercials would dig the clams instead of pulling it would save the breeders and disperse the seed

Whats the sense of doing research on something nobody can do anything about ?
