Abstract:
The bay scallop is found in only two Southeastern states -North Carolina and Florida-because it lives in seagrass beds. To protect its habitat, found mostly in Bogue and Core sounds, the state since the 1970s has closed these beds to mechanical harvesting. In 1997, 63,800 pounds were harvested, the largest harvest on the East Coast.
