Bivalve molluscs and sea snails
The term 'shellfish' includes a group known as the bivalve molluscs. These creatures have a soft body which is protected from the outside world by two shells with a tough band and tremendous muscle power. The best known is the mussel. But don't forget the heavenly venus clam and the delectable Italian vongole. Sea snails, for example the periwinkle and the whelk, usually have a single spiral shell rather than two hinged ones.
In addition to our celebrated mussels we have a variety of bivalve molluscs and sea snails. We deliver two types of sea snails: periwinkles ('creases' in the Zeeland dialect) and whelks. Our bivalve mollusc range comprises dog cockles, clams, hand-caught, MSC-certified cockles, striped venus clams, razor clams, carpet clams, smooth venus clams and the scrumptious Italian sister of the carpet clam: the Vongole veraci. And, furthermore, we also sell white venus clams and warty venus clams (don't let the name put you off, they are divine!).
