Iceland and sea Scallops (Chlamys islandica and Placopecten magellanicus) represent an important biological resource for commercial fisheries and coastal ecology. The beds of this layer are described as being known and commercially exploited historically and / or currently, and have undergone validation and delimitation treatment with a good degree of precision. They are located in the Estuary and the Gulf of St. Lawrence, on the North Shore, Anticosti, the North Shore of Gaspésie and the Magdalen Islands. The beds are considered among the most abundant beds of scallops used for commercial fishing (noteworthy: high densities and fishing activity do not strictly stick to these beds).
