OTHER FARMED SPECIES
There are two cultivated ways for the Peruvian calico scallop from Peru :
- In the northern region (from Chimbote to Parachique), seabed scallops are hand-collected by divers, and following the size, either sold to processing plants, or returned to the bottom sea to get a marketable size.
- In the southern region (Pisco), scallops are suspended in either the lantern or pocket net systems. They are removed from the nets and sorted by size.
Small animals may be placed in fresh lanterns and returned to the sea while market-sized animals are transferred to the processing plants.
