The Museum

The Clam can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"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."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I got a clam! Anyone for chowder?"
