Have you ever seen a Geoduck?

War Shore is always hunting for interesting shellfish products for chefs to prepare, add to their menus, and present to patrons. One that’s been around a long time but is somewhat rare and always mispronounced in these parts is the Pacific Geoduck.

The “gooey-duck” – not “gee-oh-duck” – is a species of very large, edible, saltwater clam native to the coastal waters of western Canada and the northwest United States. It is also one of the longest-living animals of any type, with a lifespan of up to 160 years. The crunchy texture and savory flavor makes this clam a delicacy in many Asian countries including China, Japan, and Korea.

To see this unusual animal and understand how best to prepare Geoduck, check out the post from our customer, Chef Robert Wiedmaier, as he prepares one of War Shore’s own specialty items.
