About this book

The scallop farming industry continues to expand, providing an important global source of food and revenue. In recent decades over-fishing has caused a decline in wild stocks and as consumer demand increases, the opportunities for new and existing scallop farming ventures are greater than ever before.

This book is an essential tool for all those working in the scallop farming industry and will be an important source of reference for equipment manufacturers and suppliers, traders and policy makers, environmental and marine scientists and universities and research establishments where these areas are studied and taught.
