I can't think of anything to say,yet.It just occurred to me that it rolls off the tongue and I couldn't stop laughing as I typed it out and read it,aloud.
It could become a surf and turf dish at The Harpoon Restaurant once things get back to normal.

Steve, speaking of clams, you are probably aware of dangers of toxic red tides?

It is very serious, might have been what lead to demise a president.

The "Coup Clucks Clam" has certain natural characteristics.
Because of the truth in the old cliche "There is strength in numbers" the Coup Clucks Clam (no neck) needs to hide in the mud with many of its own kind,lest some clam digger comes through and uncovers them.

Man,those clam flats emit a stench when turned over by a digger at low tide.

"Man,those clam flats emit a stench when turned over by a digger at low tide"

We have a place on the coast here called the Dry land sort. It's a natural bay with a good flat area where They sorted & dumped the logs into the water to make into booms. There's probably 200 years of rotting bark on the bottom.

The stench at low tide will make you hurl! When I'm driving by with tourist friends I like to say " Ah. The smell of the sea!" and then it hits them.

PSP Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning. Has stopped the west coast shellfish fishery almost completely.

When I do get to the city, everything is air freight from the east coast. Mind you, it's good stuff but it isn't "home." I'd rather eat alligator (which I really like, lemon and breaded.)

More and more of the shrimp and prawns are sewage-fed from SE Asia.
No amount of sauce can hide the slightly "off" taste.

At least, I can hope that the calamari are wild-caught. Not exactly Humboldt Squid but the tubes are OK for several dishes.

BrianT I was surprised when you said our shellfish fishery was shut down & I checked & yes it is!
When I worked at the resort the chefs only cooked east coast mussels. I asked them what was wrong with the ones right there. They hunched their shoulders so I looked into it.

I checked the D.F.O. site & they said it was fine for our area. After work I went down & pulled a feed off with needle nose pliers. If you rip their beards off they die. Brought them home in a bucket of seawater. That was almost twenty years ago.

I worked at a fish plant here where the owner had oyster farms & processed clams for sale in China town in Vancouver. He ran fresh water treated by U.V. lights & had to have every shipment tested.

We've just recently quit pumping raw sewage into waters here in Victoria. Mr. Floatie has retired! Makes me wonder what's wrong now?

The French on our east coast used to cook their mussels like this.

I never make this stuff up. It's been what? 3-4 years now? From Baja north.
Story goes that juice off one big oyster is enough to kill you.

There are some people growing scallops in cages offshore from Prince Rupert.
Lots of BS about availability. Just try to lay your hands on one.

I do steamed mussels in a white wine/garlic/butter broth.
Strips of onion and g. peppers in there.
Baguettes and butter and supper's on the table.

Grandpa used to take us clam digging on a flat over on the North Shore.
All screwed over with the Lonsdale Quay shopping center and the Z-Drive tug boat slips.
Grandma would feed them oatmeal and we got clam chowder the next night.
Now all I have is crud in a can.
