PECTINIDAE (Scallops)

A visually stunning Family with approx. 350 species. This is my favourite Bivalve family and to see a collection of these is breathtaking with big bold brightly colored specimens that stand out in any display, to the small delicate species with muted tones emblazoned with darker patterns. They tend to be deep water dwellers most specimens being collected by fishing boats.
