Scallops Released April 20, 2010 RMA had the pleasure of helping release about 1,000 baby scallops into
St. Andrew Bay on April 20, 2010. Dr. Stephen Geiger of the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWCC) delivered the scallops
from St. Petersburg, FL and we released them in areas where seagrasses
thrive in St. Andrew Bay. This is an ongoing project sponsored by FWCC,
the Panama City NOAA Fisheries Lab, RMA, and Gulf Coast Community
Volunteers Rachel Detoro (DEP Northwest Florida Aquatic Preserve Office), Carly Karas (Gulf Coast Community College), and Lisa Rahn (St. Andrew Bay RMA), along with Panama City News Herald reporter, Chris Segal, prepare to release scallops. Photo by Steve Haines for St. Andrew Bay RMA.
