SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Placopecten magellanicus

SPECIES NAME(s)

American sea scallop

Genetic differentiation between banks is considered as weak due to gene flow but there are recruitment and growth regional variations that support the consideration of distinct assessment and management units (Caddy et al., 2010): Eastern Scotian Shelf (SFA 25), St. Pierre Bank (SFA 10, 11, 12), Browns and German Banks (SFA 26) and Eastern Georges Bank (SFA 27).

This fishery was recertified by the Marine Stewardship Council in June 2015. Click here to link to the MSC fishery page and to learn more about the MSC fishery certification unit.
