[Giant Clams] Farming Geoducks in the Pacific Northwest

Written by on July 12th, 2010 · 536 views

Foodenator now presents you with the user-voted most awful looking thing to eat ever. EVER.

Ever heard of geoducks? First of all, they’re pronounced gooey-ducks. The prehistoric-looking and, well, pretty ugly shellfish, are native to the Pacific Northwest and fascinating creatures. Though tough to raise (it involves hours of hunched-over farming), they’ve been called the prime rib of clams. Liza de Guia tried some for the first time on her recent trip to Washington state.

“I can honestly say as a seafood lover I felt like I had been missing out my whole life. I tried geoduck sashimi, geoduck fritters, geoduck in chowder and geoduck ceviche.” She visited Taylor Shellfish‘s geoduck farm on Stretch Island in Puget Sound, the largest growers in the Northwest, in this episode of Food Curated.

this is not real. i’ve seen geoducks and they are SO not gay like these things. real geoducks are like mini steaks, totally INSIDE the clamshell. don’t fall for this Pacific Northwest gay agenda BS .

That is also the offical mascot of my own Alma Mater:

The Geoduck Fight Song
words and music by Malcolm Stilson, 1971

Go, Geoducks go,
Through the mud and the sand,
let’s go.
Siphon high, squirt it out,
swivel all about,
let it all hang out.

Go, Geoducks go,
Stretch your necks when the tide
is low
Siphon high, squirt it out,
swivel all about,
let it all hang out.
