Harvesting Alaska Scallops

Harvested in the icy waters off the Gulf of Alaska, Alaska scallops are harvested via standard New Bedford-style dredges that consist of a 12 to 15-foot wide fixed frame to which a steel ring bag, consisting of 4-inch rings linked together, is attached to collect the scallops as the dredge is towed. Alaska Scallops are hand-shucked and frozen within hours, ensuring their just-caught flavor and texture.

Packed on board without the use of chemicals or preservatives, Alaska Scallop fishermen are able to consistently deliver product which lives up to its reputation for flavor and freshness. And because the Alaska Scallop fishery is conservatively managed and tightly regulated, a consistent supply of high-quality seafood is assured, year-round.
