The geoduck or gooyduck is the largest species of clams on the face of the earth.

The clam grows to around 15 to 20cm but itís long siphon can reach 1 meter in length.

It weighs between 0.5 and 1.5 kilograms but can grow much larger. There have been stories about 7.5 kg heavy gooyducks.

I would have guessed some kind of mutant snail.

That there is just one more reason to stay the heck out of the ocean:sp

They're lying to us. It's actually the first succesful crossbreeding of a fish and a bomb.

What does it taste like?

Well let's see,

You slice the neck into 1/2 inch slices then tenderize it with a tenderizer hammer. Season as you like then pan fry, I use olive oil, for about a minute or two on each side.
The texture is very meaty like a fillet of Tenderloin Steak. It does not taste like chicken. But is similar to abalone or squid or a cherry stone clam. It is very flavorful and mouth watering. Similar to the way a fine back strap of a deer is mouth watering.
I don't know if that explanation will relate in any way to anyone. Yet it is the best I could do. You can google them on line and order live ones for over night delivery and try them yourselves. Very enjoyable.
