Atlantic Sea Scallops

Atlantic Sea Scallops


Profile image
Atlantic sea scallops are found in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean, from Newfoundland to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. Adult scallops live close together in groups called “beds” on sandy or gravelly parts of ocean floor generally at depths of about 100 to 300 feet on Georges Bank and in the Mid-Atlantic. Sea scallops can be found in shallower waters in Maine and Canada (courtesy of NOAA website). Sea scallops have a sweet, rich taste that can be mild or briny. Raw scallops are shiny, creamy white, sometimes with an orange or pinkish tint. An orange or pink color is a natural variation that does not affect taste or quality. High quality scallops have an ivory translucence and should keep their shape. Cooked scallops are opaque white with a firm, lean texture. (From Seafood Business, 2005)
