According to the statistics from Vietnam Customs, Vietnam’s clam exports to the US reached over 2 million USD, equivalent to the same period last year. The US is the 6th largest market for live mollusks with shells imported from Vietnam, accounting for 9% of the total share, of which clams are the main product.



The Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) has obtained data from the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) of the US. In the first quarter of 2023, the US imported over 5,000 tons of clams from various countries, with a value of over 15 million USD, a decrease of 15% and 26% compared to the same period in 2022. Among them, clam imports from Vietnam to the US reached 0.68 thousand tons, a decrease of 45% compared to the same period.

In the first quarter of 2023, the US imported clams from 19 different sources worldwide. The top 5 countries exporting clams to the US were China, Canada, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand.

Overall, clam imports from most major sources declined compared to the same period, due to reduced demand and lower average import prices by 12%.

The US imported the largest quantity of canned clam products, accounting for one-third of the volume and value of clam imports. Processed clam products accounted for 43% of the volume but only 30% of the value. Frozen clam products accounted for 15% of the volume and 23% of the value.
