Donating to the museum[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

An information board in the aquarium will list information about the Clam.

"Bivalves shaped like chestnuts, they live in shallow waters and hide in sand when predators approach. They secrete a viscous liquid that gets pulled along by the current and enables long-distance travel. They are popular both roasted in the shell and cooked in a variety of soups and chowders."

Fishing Tourney[edit]

In New Leaf[edit]

Despite being a Fishing Tourney, Chip will still accept sea creatures, but they will not be scored. Chip will say this when given a Clam:

"Now with your clams, you can stew 'em or grill 'em or steam 'em. Me, I'm a fan of a good chowder. But then again, I'm perfectly happy to just swallow them whole, shell and all! I'm tough like that!"
