Manila clams, Lajonkairia lajonkairii, are a species of edible saltwater clams belonging to the Veneridae family, or venus clams. They are known to be variable in color and patterning, and range from a width of 40 to 57 millimeters. Manila clams live in shallow waters buried underneath sand, mud, or gravel.
Manila clams are native to the coastal regions of Pakistan, India, China, Japan, Korea, the Kuril Islands, and the Philippines (hence their name "manila clam" originating from the capital city of the Philippines, Manila). It has since spread to other regions including North America and Europe. They are commercially harvested around the world due to their wide distribution.
