Graphic representation of the growth of the average scallop and its gain in volume. Starting September 1 with 1 bushel of 1/2-inch scallops, the increase in volume is represented on the right in terms of bushels, corresponding to the different sized scallops on the left: (1) two-month scallop, .5 of an inch, 1 bushel; (2) three-month scallop, .91 of an inch, 7.3 bushels; (3) five-month scallop, 1.34 inches, 26.5 bushels; (4) thirteen month scallop, 1.75 inches, 62 bushels; (5) seventeen-month scallop, 2.41 inches, 185.6 bushels.... This repid increase shows the benefit of preserving the 'seed' scallop, as the yield in large scallops will more than repay the fisherman for his foresight
