  • These beauties come from our friends at New England Fish Mongers, also a small fleet committed to sustainable fishing practices and community-building.
  • Sea Scallops are very fertile—a female sea scallop can produce hundreds of millions of eggs per year! This makes them respond more rapidly to conservation actions than species that reproduce slowly and in small numbers.
  • Atlantic sea scallop fisheries are managed by allocating catch amounts to different fishing groups, limiting days-at-sea and number of trips to special access areas. Limits on crew sizes, closures on protected habitat areas, and vessel monitoring programs are also in place. (NOAA, Atlantic Sea Scallops)
