It feels strange to be concerned about an Icelandic clam when there is so much devastation in the Philippines.
Yet when I read the article, I wondered how many ancient shell-fish (not that they are fish) have already been consumed? I don’t eat the critters raw, but I have eaten, and prepared from scratch, chowders and soups, and other dishes, with clams. Not once did I ever consider the age of my ingredients. Bear
Ming the clam was the oldest animal ever. Then it didn’t die. Ming was killed.
