Placopecten magellanicus

SPECIES NAME(s)

American sea scallop

The distribution of American sea scallop in U.S. EZZ is homogenous enough to be considered a single stock. However, it is based on the two assessment unit components: the Mid-Atlantic Bight and Western Georges Bank, which are assessed separately and then combined (NEFSC, 2007).
