Great Scallop Search seeks volunteers

Florida Sea Grant needs volunteer boaters and snorkelers to participate in a one day scallop count in Santa Rosa Sound on Saturday, Aug. 1, from 8 a.m. to noon. The search will determine whether there are scallops in the Pensacola Bay System.

Volunteers will work in teams with a boat captain and three to four people to conduct the surveys. Survey areas are 1 nm2, 4 transects will be surveyed in each area. There is not a recreational harvest of scallops in our area, so this will be a non-harvest event.
