Harvested from the cold waters of the Discovery Islands in British Columbia, swimming scallops are a delicate, wonderfully tasting, and nutritious seafood. The scallops are not damaged during harvesting and well cleaned before going to the processor where they are "individually quick frozen" (IQF) to retain their "fresh caught" taste.

The West Coast Scallop Harvesters Association and the Canadian Ministry of  Fisheries and Oceans continually monitor the scallop beds to insure a healthy catch and control the allotment in order to assure sustainability of this desirable seafood.
