Striped Venus

Striped Venus Adriatic clam

An almost round and flat bivalve mollusc that, despite being longer than 40 mm, is decidedly smaller than the carpet shell clam. The external colour is light, ranging from white to beige, with frequent dark markings. This species, which is much appreciated for its exellent quality white meat, lives in costal environments, frequently forming extremely numerous populations.

Our product is only from Central and North Adriatic sea, catched along Italian coast.
