Misc. Scallops  (Family Pectinidae)

Scallops are found in all of the world’s oceans and are sought after for food and their attractive shells. Although they have the ability to cement themselves to a substrate, they are the only migratory bivalve capable of free swimming by opening and closing their shells rapidly in a clapping motion. Scallops are hermaphroditic; capable of switching sexes and may not reach harvest size for several years.
