Since 2018, AZURA has invested in the production of high quality clams from the European species Ruditapes Decussatus, by building a hatchery in Morocco.
Clam breeding takes place all year round in the hatchery, where their development is monitored: the small clams will grow and grow in the pond in a controlled environment.
When they have grown sufficiently, they are introduced into the wild to continue their growth ... After 2 years of breeding, they reach their adult size and are harvested.
The clams will then be transported to our European wholesale customers, particularly in Italy and Spain.

VENERICULTURE, AN UNIQUE NAME ...
- Clam farming is called vénériculture. It is a practice of recent culture: it has only existed for about thirty years in Europe.
- The clam can occupy a place of choice in a healthy diet, because it is a source of minerals and particularly rich in iron.
