Clams are considered to be a type of mollusk that belongs to the invertebrate genus & are known to be peaceful & harmless to fishes and corals. The term clam is defined as a mollusk whose body is protected by two symmetrical shells, meaning that it is not an oyster, a mussel, or a scallop, and that has a more-or-less oval shape, or to a freshwater mussel. An exception to the oval shape is the razor clam, which has an elongated shell whose shape suggests a straight razor. The clam's two shells are interconnected by a hinge joint. Two adductor muscles open and close the shells. The clam has no brain or eyes, but it does have kidneys, a heart, a mouth, and an anus. Clams, like most mollusks, also have open circulatory systems, which mean that their organs are surrounded by watery blood that contains nutrients and oxygen. Clams eat plankton, and they themselves are eaten by small sharks and squid. In culinary use, the term 'clam' most often refers to the hard clam but may refer to other species such as the soft-shell clam Mya arenaria.
