Nice feedback, I always wondered. I think we even tried one or two but as an experiment and did not go to a full course meal where secret ingredient was an Algonquin clam.

by the way since we're on the topic, I have to confess, the worst thing I could do in Algonquin, but it was on my second trip ever about 5-6 years ago and we were tired and hungry and it was our last day(very undersupplied and inexperienced and dehydrated too as our filter clogged). We end up hitting the jackpot and collected about a 10L water jug with a small bag, we kept them alive by shading them and changing the water often. On one portage halfway down the day we seem to have left the bag behind. By the 6th portage thereafter when it was time to change the water we were missing the jug all together. The thought of the genocide never give us peace and left us with nightmares. We were trying to reprimand our fault on the subsequent trips by being more eco conscious.

On the first trip we were actually trying to catch crayfish (they are like tiny lobsters/shrimp) at night with a flashlight, my friend caught a leach with his leg instead and the crayfish tail was smaller than a shrimp, so wasn't worth it.

We once tried freshwater mussels. Over 10 years ago. Still chewing.

Well, I guess you didn't follow the proper cooking instructions:

Put musssels/clams in pot with water
add a couple of small pebbles
when pebbles turn soft, they're ready to eat.
