In my experience, eating a clam is like when you accidentally snort some mucus out of your nose and it ends up in your mouth. Never again.

Collecting wild clams wouldn't be farming. And if people do grow them in controlled circumstances, wouldn't that be ranching, rather than farming, because they're animals, not plants?

I don't think it really counts as fishing either, as you just stick your feet/hands down in the sand and pull them up, not like luring them in on a line or trap or net.

So "clam harvesters" is probably the best bet?


Also I'm not sure I get the title. Is cancelbation like... self-satisfactory cancelling? Cancelling just because it makes you feel good to be all self-righteous?

("Cancelling" is a dumb term anyway, but everyone here probably already agrees with that.)

Honestly I just thought the word sounded funny.
