The harvesting of mollusks is an important industry in the United States, providing a value of more than $40 billion. The fishery is based primarily on the harvest of bivalves (two-shelled mollusks) such as clams or oysters, but gastropods such as abalone or conchs, and cephalopods such as squid or octopus are also harvested. The mollusk harvest takes place along the entire coast of the United States, from coastal bays and estuaries to the edge of the continental shelf.
