The most impressive clam in the Pacific Northwest is the geoduck (Panopea generosa). The world’s largest burrowing clam, the geoduck reaches an average size of 2.07 pounds (including the shell). They attain their maximum size by about 15 years, and can live at least as long as 168 years. The gaping, oblong shell is white with concentric rings, and generally has thin patches of flaky brown covering (periostracum) at the edges. The siphon and mantle are so large that they cannot be withdrawn into the shell.
