New Scallop Quota Season Starts in Two Weeks

We Love It When You Share Our Content


April 1st may be April fools day, but it also marks the beginning of the new Atlantic sea scallop season. There won’t be a flood of fresh North Atlantic sea scallops entering the market immediately, but there will be an increase in supply.

Unfortunately, this year, the quota was reduced to a combined total of 56 million pounds, a jaw-dropping 50% less than 2020 when the Atlantic coast quota was approximately 100 million pounds. It is doubtful that we will see prices below $30 a pound on large scallops (U/8 & U/10).

Prices are subject to change.
