New Bedford and Digby scallops are a great conservation story. When "closed" areas are reopened, they get great amounts of wonderful sea scallops. The efforts (unlike the salmon restoration project)have yielded better than expected results. By putting rotating areas off limits, and allowing scallops to grow and reproduce, an industry has been restored, and is now "sustainable". Yum. I am not a big fan of the Chinese "bay" scallops. At 2.99 per pound, I buy them, but they are never as good as the sea scallops.
