About this book

Scallops are among the better known shellfishes and are widely distributed throughout the world. They are of worldwide economic importance and support both commercial fisheries and mariculture efforts. This book covers all aspects of scallop biology, including anatomy, physiology, ecology, larval biology and neurobiology. Chapters are also devoted to the adductor muscle and population dynamics. Commercial fisheries and aquaculture are discussed in detail for all countries/species where scallops are harvested or grown. This volume forms the only comprehensive treatise on the biology of scallops. Extensive reference lists are included. It should be of interest to advanced undergraduate/graduate students, mariculturists, aquaculturists and other marine research workers.
