Cost of Scallops Nationwide?

Querencia | Feb 2, 201511:03 AM

Just now I was looking at a CH feature post offering scallop recipes "7 days a week". As scallops are now $30 lb in Chicago, my curiosity was aroused. I know that New Bedford MA is a scalloping port. Just out of curiosity, what are the big sea scallops selling for in New England? Or anywhere?

Does anyone know why scallops get expensive while oysters just get rare? Last summer I was with an extended family member who is a commercial fisherman ("waterman") on Chesapeake Bay and he swore the problem is not overfishing.
