Are clams alive if they are closed?

September 7, 2022, 22:55, asked: Dan Canada

How do you know if your bivalves are alive? Immediately get rid of anything with broken or damaged shells. Clams and mussels shells should be slightly open, and should shut quickly when you tap on them. If they're closed, don't shut, or float in water, they're dead....

Are frozen clams raw?

September 7, 2022, 18:47, asked: West Coast Reel Services

Are frozen clams safe to eat?

September 7, 2022, 11:07, asked: Scott Wilson

Frozen clams certainly would be killed, and so wouldn't open upon steaming. The thing about never refreeze is almost certainly a palatability issue, not a safety issue, as long as they stay in the safe zone (under 40 degrees F) and are not unfrozen for very long--but clams are highly perishable....

Do clams need to stay in water?

August 30, 2022, 04:38, asked: Fishing World ?

When the fresh water is filtered, the clam pushes salt water and sand out of their shells. After 20 minutes, the clams will have cleaned themselves of much of the salt and sand they have collected. Do not store live shellfish in water for longer than this, otherwise they will begin to die.”...
