Yup - Filter feeders.......Filter feeding bivalve. During summer months it can eat dinoflagellates and are extremely toxic if they do.
Yah dudes..The gnarliest clamming is between TJ and LA where the water is polluted from 20-30 million people flushing everything down the drain and toxic storm drain runoff etc.. Science rulesIsnt this what happened to bugs also? When will people learn to STFU on a public forum?
Some day you will learn.
Aren't we all filter feeders and all that changes is the size of particle we are filtering? Ever eat liver and onions? liver filters out poisons we produce during exercise. Steak and kidney pie? kidney is a urine filter.
I don't think it is necessarily a problem but I do agree with the post about eating clams taken from near the Tijuana River or any place close to the border where you are only a couple of miles from Tijuana's "sewage treatment" plant which really is just a straight pipe going to the beach.
Get rid of the clam's tummy and eat away! Ahh, fried clams. YUMM
