March Food of the Month: Clams

Growing domestic incomes and changing lifestyles of the average consumer is fueling demand for many high value seafood commodities in Asia, creating abundant opportunities for U.S. exporters. Hong Kong remains one of the world’s largest per capita consumers of seafood and China remains the global seafood powerhouse as the largest consumer, importer, exporter and producer of seafood. According to PIERS data, the U.S. sends 40% of the clams produced to Hong Kong and 15% to China.
