Razor Clams

The razor clam is a shellfish belonging to the Solenidae family. It owes its name to its knife handle shape. Rich in protein, this 10-20 cm long mollusk lives buried in the sand and is harvested during low tides along the Atlantic coast. It can be identified by the small keyhole-shaped holes it forms in the sand. The razor clam can come out of its hiding place by pouring a little salt into its hole.
Razor clams live in the sand by digging a hole about 80 cm deep. These mollusks can be caught only during the tides with a  coefficient higher than 90.
Razor clams are very tough; They hold very well to the hook and can require a strong cast.
