Fishing is still practiced sustainably here - the Comeau family business has developed a reputation for quality and consistency over the last few years. The family business has been traveling to the Canadian Atlantic around Nova Scotia to collect deep-sea scallops for over 60 years. The largest wild scallop fisheries occur in eastern Canada, down to the northeastern United States. Of particular importance to Comeau is the area off Nova Scotia around Georges Bank, one of the richest fishing grounds in the world. The abundance of scallops in Atlantic Canada is due to their healthy population and sustainably managed, quota-controlled fisheries. The scientific name for the scallop is Placopecten magellanicus . The scallop is caught with trawls in the Northwest Atlantic (FAO 21).
