Soft-Shelled Clam (Mya Arenaria)

A clam with a thin and brittle shell, living in coastal waters around Britain and France, and also at the same latitudes in the western Atlantic (they are the most popular clam in New England for battering and frying). They are sometimes known as "Long-Neck" or "Steamer" clams.

They can be used for any recipe using clams, but need careful cleaning as they tend to be gritty.
