This Friday marks the opening of scallop season. The limit in Wellington is 20 per person and they must be measured underwater. Remmember to be careful, keep an eye on your air, use a flag and keep a listen out for boats in the area. The Marlborough Sounds is closed for scallops this year to give the beds a rest.
