Episode 2

A heist on the high seas

“The day in mention, I went out to the two fishing vessels that were in our quarantine zone. We had to remove the clams off that vessel … and I saw them and thought this is going to be challenging.”

In this episode, we meet a fisheries officer and a mollusc specialist who reveal how the world’s biggest bivalves came to be in the MAGNT collection. Discover what’s so special about these giant molluscs and why should they be protected.

This episode features MAGNT’s Senior Curator of Molluscs, Dr Richard Willan, and Fisheries Officer from Australian Fisheries Management Authority, Paul Seden.
