August 13, 2016. Scallop distribution is in full swing.

Scallops are being distributed today to VH and OB. They are placed on a cotton pad with a turkey baster and wrapped in tissue. The shellfish constables transport these little bundles of scallops to their nursery lines where they are placed in hanging spat bags away from crabs until the fall. Also in our setting systems are stripe shelled scallop seed from a NMFS project we are assisting with.
