Farmed Seafood and "R" Months

lamb_da_calculus | Jun 15, 2013 12:40 PM

I'm guessing most people have heard of the advice to not eat seafood in months not containing the letter R. Reasons for this seem to range from spawning cycles to certain bacteria to heat just making shipping worse (although the last one seems unlikely given how modern shipping works).

Question is: does any of this matter at all if the seafood is farmed? I've been seeing farmed clams at the supermarket and would like to try something with them.
