Manila clams are primarily grown and harvested in the cold, clean waters of the Pacific Northwest and Alaska for US distribution. We source most our product out of Alaska, but the Puget Sound and Vancouver Island, BC is ideal territory for the Manila clam as well. Because we distribute out of our facility in Seattle, we will also sell product grown and harvested locally (within a 3-hr trucking distance). This product is sourced from two well-known suppliers here in Washington State and is delivered to us 6 days a week.
