Scallops are usually caught using a device called the "Drag". This is a metal frame with teeth to which a chain-mesh, rope mesh net or netting is attached. The drag is towed through scallop beds and the catch is raked into the bag. The drag is taken on board, the bag emptied, and the newly acquired scallops are shucked while the drag is being towed again.
The eastern and southern area of Canada along with the northwest region of the USA are home to some of the richest scallop grounds in the world, including the famous 'Bay of Fundy'.
