Ensis macha

The Ensis macha, or Navaja or Navajuela as it is called in Spanish, is a bivalve mollusc of the family Pharidae. It inhabits the coasts of Peru, Chile and southern Argentina. Ensis macha lives in sand or muddy sediments in the subtidal zone[2] where it can burrow to a depth of up to 13 metres. Ensis macha is one of the world's economically most significant Ensis species, with a total catch of 6,000 tons in Chile in 1999.[3]
