The Arctic surf clam from Bedford, Nova Scotia: It’s big in Japan!

Does the Arctic surf clam ring a bell? Not many Canadians are familiar with this variety of clam. But in fact, the world’s biggest Arctic surf clam fishery is based in Bedford, Nova Scotia.

Together, they cook a dish featuring this delicious mollusc, which after being harvested on the high seas of Canada is mostly exported to Japan. The distinctive red and white flesh of the Arctic surf clam will whet your appetite and make you want to sample this Canadian seafood for yourself!
