@FAKEBACON

well since wikipedia is such a great source or reliable information (which by the way, your link doesn`t even work) i figured i would give you a direct line from the "shellfish" page...

Although most kinds of shellfish are harvested from saltwater environments, some kinds are found only in freshwater.

They are quick little buggers. With that Darwinian adaptation of having one leg longer than the other so that they can run round hills whilst staying level with the horizon, they`re near impossible to catch without the right "haggis bagging" equipment.

I do like sea food. I just require it to be actual fish.

That`s just a scurrilous cliche. Our national dish is actually fried Mars Bar.

I live relatively close to the coast and hate sea slime also. People tell me I`m not a true New Englander for that but I don`t care I can`t stand it! Give me steak!!

Although, to those of you raving about shellfish. I was talking with some marine biologist buddies who were talking about a study that looked at people`s taste preference of shellfish. Shellfish tend to collect a lot of toxins and retain them very well. The study sought to compare taste preference of clean raised organisms vs. the usual toxin laden shellfish people are used to. People absolutely hated the clean shellfish.

@MacGuffin: I don`t see how four-legged, furcovered poo machines are any better than the soft flesh bodies of more base sea creatures. Flesh is flesh. I think you`re just conditioned to be used to the fur-covered kind..

"Yeauch!!!! I don`t understand how anyone can bear to eat these. Or prawns. Or lobster. Anything that comes out of the sea and resembles a snail, a reptile, an arachnid or an insect is out in my book."

Kinda weird that you prefer to eat mammals with big brains and faces. Things that resemble yourself more than a spider.

That`s not how clams eat -- it`s just trying to dig to safety and getting salt on its `foot.`

Actually I believe that`s the clams `foot`. When clams detect salt, they think they are underwater and can safely move around.

Clams are really tasty. I`m guessing Macguffin is just creeped out by it.

It`s the foot of the clam. I remember dissecting one in a physiology class once. They`re pretty cool organisms, if not a little creepy.

Is it eating the salt?
Or is it groping around trying to get leverage
and drag it`s body tod water before it asphyxiates?
