The purpose of this research was to know the distribution and density of clams (Tridacnidae) in Derawan Islands. The research was conducted in three islands of Derawan Islands, Berau District, East Kalimantan, namely Maratua, Panjang and Raburabu Islands. RRI (Rapied reef Resources Inventory) method was applied in September 2004. There were 414 individuals, belonging to four species, namely Tridacna crocea, T. derasa, T. maxima and T. squamosa. The highest density was found in Tridacna crocea (0.193 ind/1000m²) and the lowest density was T. squamosa (0.002 ind/1000m²) in Maratua Island.
