I'm new here and I have a growing interest in collecting Mussels and Clams from my local beach.
I live in Bronx, NY and it's a saltwater beach were I would like to harvest them from.
I was told their not safe to eat. But was wondering if I purge them a few days with cornmeal and breadcrumbs and fresh salt water daily will there become safe to eat??
People eat fish they catch at this beach so I would think mussels and clams can be purged to eat safely.
Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance!,
