Clams, mussels, oysters and scallops are sumptuous global delicacies. Humans consume over 14 million metric tons of “bivalve mollusks” every year, and they are favorites on many local menus. How fast do they grow? Are they a sustainable resource? How many types are there around the globe? Follow museum marine biologist, Paul Valentich-Scott, as he travels the world in search of new discoveries about this fascinating, yet poorly understood, group of animals.
