Scallops are amongst the most prized ocean caught, fresh seafood in the world. what do they look like on the inside and how do you get them ready to eat?
These scallops were caught during a scuba dive in San Diego California by local divers using hands free dive lights and a dive knife to pry them away from the rocks.
Scallops can swim using a jet of water that is created when the shell opens and closes. Because they can swim, the muscles inside build up much faster than other shellfish.
Scallops can have up to 100 simple eyes that help them detect patterns, light and motion.
