The scallop fishery is becoming more and more valuable.
The industries of the island are unimportant; there is considerable cod and scallop fishing.
The Pseudolamellibranchia included the oyster, scallop and their allies which formerly constituted the order Monomyaria, having only a single large adductor muscle or in addition a very small anterior adductor.
On the south-east coast is the Clam-shell or Scallop Cave.
They are characterized by a carved cockle or scallop shell, often situated on the top of a desk or on the front of a chest.
