This is the day we’ve been waiting for, Chowdaheadz! There is a bill going through the Statehouse right now that could make the Quahog (nickname for Clam) the official shellfish of the Bay State!
The word Quahog (pronounced Co-Hog) is derived from the Native American term for my species. The movement was started over 2 years ago by 7th graders in Taunton, Mass. Thanks to the kids in Taunton for getting the ball rolling! Let’s hope the State lawmakers get this one right.
