This book is the result of the work of forty-five scientists and tchnicians from Latin America and Spain interested in the fascinating Pectinid mollusks, commonly known as scallops. This mollusk provides the world-wide appreciated "callos," a tasty gourmet choice. Traditionally, this mollusk has been exploited in its natural environment. However, the first industrial farms were developed thirty years ago, mainly in China, Japan, and Chile.
