SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Pecten maximus

SPECIES NAME(s)

Great Atlantic scallop, King scallop

Brittany and Scottish populations are genetically different (Beaumont et al., 1993) but the stock structure of the species is not clear despite several genetic studies conducted (e.g. Wilding et al., 1998; discussion in Beaumont and Gjedrem, 2007). Five stock units are defined around Scotland based on the respective Scottish assessment areas, West of Kintyre, NW Scotland, Orkney, NE Scotland and East Coast Scotland; the East Coast England stock is assumed, in the lack of better information, to cover the remaining English east coast.
