Bay Scallop Restoration
FWRI scientists Sara Bergeron and Sarah Stephenson tagging
restoration scallops to monitor growth.
One of the goals of FWRI scientists is to restore bay scallops
(Argopecten irradians) to areas where natural populations
have been depleted. Juvenile bay scallops, or "spat", are grown in
cages off docks to plant in target restoration areas.
