Mahogany clams (Arctica islandica) are delicious hard-shell clams harvested from the deep water off the coast of Maine. Mahogany clams, which are very similar to the littlenecks clams grown in the southern waters, are named for their deep golden mahogany colored shell. Mahogany clams possess a flavor similar to that of a Littleneck, only slightly higher in salinity. Our mahogany clams are harvested in the Northern part of Maine off the coast of a small fishing town of Addison. Immediately following harvest, the mahoganies are placed in a top-water suspension so they may purge themselves of an impurities. The clams are then inspected for quality, packed, and shipped to you.
