Giant Clams in Wallis: Prospects for Development

This paper examines the possibility of harvesting clams for sale, either within the island of Wallis or beyond. An outline of the environmental social and economic characteristics of the country is provided, together with an assessment of the role of Wallis in the Pacific that is likely to affect the potential for marketing clams. Clam usage and harvesting practices are described, along with local views on the size and location of clam stocks. This data allows the views of Wallisians about the social and economic possibilities for marketing clams to be represented.
