Asian clam has long been a traditional food and income for people in the East Coast of Malaysia especially in Kelantan. The number of Asian clam population from natural habitat is declining due to over harvesting. This situation negatively affected local social economic. However, scientific research on production of Asian clam are scarce been carried out. The lacking of information and publication found on this species including its production and movement of Asian clam. This research was conducted to observe the correlation between Asian clam movement and weight towards treated quail dung in closed system. The experimental tanks will be set up in triplicates. Three grids (A, B and C) have been marked in each experimental tank to measure the movement of Asian clam. Each experimental tank containing 30 samples marked with identification number and fed with treated quail dung at Grid C. The weight (g), movement (mm) and mortality of each sample was taken weekly for four weeks. From the results, the best percentages (%) for mean weight increment and movement of Asian clam are 1.27 ± 2.68 and 1.48 ± 0.86 respectively. The mortality rate of Asian clam in this experiment is 4.44 ± 4.16. The findings of this result shown treated quail dung can be used as food source of Asian clam.
