What do sea scallops look like?



Drew Chase

Sea scallops are bivalve mollusks. Their shell is made of two dish-like plates hinged on one side, just like clams. Scallops have the addition of two wing-like projections to either side of the hinge. There is a small gap in these wings that allows the passage of water. The muscles of the scallop that people eat are the powerful adducter muscles that hold the shell closed on most bivalves, but on a scallop are used to swim.
