Description:

Sea almonds are a type of seafood of small size, with a shape similar to an almond. They are commonly found in shallow waters and can be collected by hand from beaches at low tide. Although they are not as popular as other seafood, they are considered a delicacy in some parts of the world.

This mollusk has a rough, hard shell that protects its soft body and its muscular foot, which allows it to move along the seabed. Sea almonds feed on plankton and other particles that they filter from the water with their gills.
