Press Release: Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

The 2013 recreational season for bay scallops will close Wednesday, Sept. 25. The final day of harvesting is Sept. 24.

FWC scallop researchers will conduct underwater surveys after the season closes to reassess the scallop population.

While the season is open, scallop harvesters can assist researchers by completing an online survey at http://svy.mk/bayscallops, indicating where they harvest scallops, how many they collect and how long it takes to harvest them.

Participants can email BayScallops@MyFWC.com to ask questions or send additional information.

Visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on “Saltwater,” “Recreational Regulations” and “Bay Scallops” to learn more.
