ABSTRACT
Clam, the popular name for a number of two-shelled mollusks related to the scallops and oysters. Clams are found in the coastal waters of the sea and in shallow freshwater lakes and streams. Many clams are edible, and "clambake" picnics are popular along the Atlantic coast of the United States and Canada. Clams are also used as fish bait, and their shells can be made into buttons. The shells were also sometimes used by American Indians to make wampum.
