WHAT IS A QUAHOG?
A quahog (pronounced kwa-hog) is a hard clam, available year-round in Rhode Island waters and harvested to make favorite dishes such as clam chowder and stuffies. Quahogs are inherently nutritious—high in selenium, zinc, iron, magnesium, and B vitamins.
Stuffies are a tradition in Rhode Island featuring chopped clams mixed with breading and spices, baked, and served in the clamshell.
More than 100 species of seafood are landed in the Ocean State, annually weighing in at 102 million pounds!
