    Hi sponsors -

    Anyone perhaps have stock of some clams? I don't want to pay my head off of-course ;-)

    Please let me know from who and where and how much I can get a clam or two from?

    Many thanks.
    JacquesB

    Tridacna clams

    Have you come right?

    AQuality imports regularly.

    I can't say they're as cheap as some have been last 2 years or so.

    Cheap clam prices are strange, if you consider the CITES permit cost per smallish shipment of 20clams or so.
    Incidental freight, packing, taxes,clearing/forwarding costs and ACTUAL CLAM PRICE.

    My policy is min 1month holding before selling.

    At the moment I have a few available,after 1YEAR growout IN SA at another location

    T squamosa
    T maxima
    T crocea

    NONE are small though.
    Average size 120mm, larger.

    Prices range from R699 up.
    Don't lose your head if it's out of budget.

    Clams are creatures that CAN SLOWLY DIE,IN CAPTIVITY, or THRU TRANSPORT CHAIN. Thus, fooling you into thinking it was short-lived.

    Call during day, or pm.
    I'll see if my holding facility, can generate some pix for us over next few days.
