Fresh Weathervane scallops are some of the largest of the commercially harvested scallops and have a wonderful sweet flavor and firm texture. We are bringing in fresh Weathervane Scallops from Kamishak Bay in Alaska’s Cook Inlet. This is a highly regulated quota fishery conducted by only a few permit holders. Weathervane Scallops are harvested from an area at the foot of the Augustine Volcano; carefully dredged from a volcanic sand bed. Scallop meat is shucked at sea on the deck of the fishing vessel and packed in ice until delivered to the dock. Weathervane Scallops come in 10/15 count and are chemical free.
Alternatives include Atlantic Scallops or Mano de Leon Scallops
