Nantucket Bay Scallop season opens November 1st and runs through March. Fishing for these scallops is a very restricted and labor intensive process which makes their availability very inconsistent. Fishermen are only able to harvest if the air temperature is above 28 degrees before 10:00am. Pair such limiting factors with the wintery weather of the Northeast coastline, and one can start to understand how hard it is to attain this product.
Sustainably Sourced 8 oz. Nantucket Bay Scallops
Each year, these scallops are fished sustainably with time and attention given to putting back scallops not yet ready for harvest. This ensures a healthy ecosystem for years to come and provides customers with delicious 8 oz. Nantucket scallops that are packed with the sweet flavor they are known for.

Safe Handling of Frozen Nantucket Bay Scallops
Storage: Keep frozen ≤ 0℉ (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed Scallops held under these conditions should retain its quality for at least six to 12 months. It is important to note, seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.
Thawing instructions: Thaw under refrigeration ≤ 38℉ ((3℃). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging. For quick-thawing, place frozen scallops in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture the package). Regardless of chosen thawing technique, once the product is thawed, it should be cooked within 24 hours and stored at a temperature no higher than 38℉ (3℃).
