    Re: Ask the meaning of a sentence .

    .
    Blood clams are a kind of edible bivalve mollusc (Noetia ponderosa or Anadara ovalis). They are a delicacy, but dangerously poisonous in some circumstances, so their harvest is probably prohibited.

    The government worker is exhibiting a bag of these clams, which they have taken from someone who was illegally collecting them. ('file photo' means that the photograph is an old one, taken before the news occurred)
