Shellfish Razor Clam/shell/fish

Hello, I'm a Commmercial Shellfish Diver from the west coast of Scotland, I'm looking to start exporting to the Far East and I know that a lot of the Razor Clams that I sell to Exporters end up in Hong Kong, I was wondering if anyone knows how much they are sold for at the markets over there eg, (large over 17cm,medium over 15cm and small under 15cm) so that I can work out if it would be feasible to start exporting, If anyone is interested distributing/selling my exports when they reach HK then please also get in touch.

Received this via email:

There are several requirements/documentation to be approved etc before importing especially with concerns re endangered foodstuffs/overfishing, bivalves or ciguetera toxin. One good thing is that seafood imports are tariff and tax free. [Why I would know that is still a mystery to me]

Good sources of information/regulations are the websites for
 - HK Government SAR
 - Trade Development Council of HK
 - HK Seafood Importers Association
 - British Chamber of Commerce

I think a while ago - I read an interesting article from the Australian Export Department on importing seafood to HK and China which was full of interesting [per se] info/data etc.
