Fish Description

The scallop is a fanlike slowgrowing shell, after 10 years its size is 6,8-8.5 cm.
The edible part is the single adductor muscle for closing the valves of the shell.
The scallops feed on microscopic plants and animals, and many are able to swimm with spasmodic clapping movements of the valves.
