Littleneck Clam (Protothaca stamineais)

The Pacific Coast clam industry is small, about 1% of the total U.S. catch. However, it is an important part of the heritage of many coastal communities and is a factor in the economies of some rural areas. Most littleneck clams are sold fresh and un-shucked to wholesale fish houses. The littleneck clam is one of the most popular species harvested intertidally for recreational purposes in Puget Sound and along the Washington coast.
