Florida considers extending bay scallop season

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is discussing extending recreational bay scallop harvest season by two weeks.

The season starts July 1. Normally it runs through Sept. 10, but at its upcoming meeting in Palm Beach Gardens on Thursday the commission will discuss extending the season.

Bay scallops can be recreationally harvested in Gulf of Mexico state waters within nine nautical miles from shore from the Pasco-Hernando County line to the west bank of the Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County.

The recreational bag limit is two gallons of whole bay scallops or one pint of meat a person, a day; the vessel limit is 10 gallons of whole bay scallops or one-half gallon of meat.

There is no commercial harvest for bay scallops in Florida state waters.
