Razor clams from DZM

Ensis directus is the scientific name for razor clams. The razor is a very popular shellfish, not only in the countries around the Mediterranean, but also in global growth markets people appreciate this specialty. DZM fishes for razors all year round with the YE118 Noordland.


The razor fishing by DZM has been MSC certified for years. The razors are carefully taken from the soil so that they do not become stressed, which is very important for the quality.


Fishing area

FAO 27/iv c, Northsea

On board

Immediately after having been caught, the razor clams are stored on board in depuration tanks  located in the ship's hold. These tanks are connected to seawater and air. Like this the razor clams can spit out sand. After 24 hours they are practically sand-free. 

In the factory

At DZM's factory, the desanding process is completed whereafter the razorclams are graded and packed.
