Geoduck is a large clam with simple anatomy. There are two major parts to remember: the siphon or neck, which hangs out of the shell, and the mantle (also called breast), the meaty part that sits inside the shell. Native to the Pacific Northwest and Western Canadian coast, geoducks anchor themselves into the ground with a small “foot,” and remain in one spot for their entire lives. Several feet below ground, the massive saltwater clam sucks in seawater, filtering for plankton and precious vitamins, and squirts out the excess through its impressive siphon. Their necks easily stretch from banana to baseball lengths, depending on how comfortably situated they are (they’re happiest and longest when they’re underground).
Geoduck meat is sweet and clear in taste. A delicate, crunchy texture distinguishes the geoducks from other mollusks too. And if the texture and taste aren’t enough to please, these wrinkly creatures are also heralded as aphrodisiacs — especially in China.
