Scallops have dozens of small blue eyes
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission – Do you see what EYE see? Is that a scallop looking back at me?
If you’re going scalloping this season, keep an eye out for rows of eyes.
Scallops have dozens of small blue eyes that run along the edges of their shell openings.
These dazzling blue peepers scan around for movement and shadows that could indicate to the scallop that a predator is nearby.
Be sure to check the area you are going scalloping in for area-specific harvesting regulations.
