About this Event

Project Goal

To increase depleted scallop populations in some bays and reintroduce scallops in other suitable areas from which scallops have disappeared. If you want more information on this program, see the article “Become a Scallop-Sitter and Help Restore Scallops in the Florida Panhandle.”) If you want to view a video providing an overview of bay scallop biology, the fishery, and our restoration program, including a demonstration on how to care for your scallops, view our Scallop Restoration Webinar video.
