Scallops: Variation in size of scallops. The two on the left are fifteen months old, while the two on the right are 'seed' scallops three months old. The difference in size in scallops of the same age, especially in different localities, renders impossible the definition of a 'seed' scallop by means of a size limit
Scallops over one year old, as shown by the formation of the annual growth line, which is caused by cessation of growth during the winter months. Any scallop which does not possess this annual growth line is less than one year old, and is a 'seed' scallop. The present legal definition of a 'seed' scallop is based on the annual growth line, as its absence indicates that the animal has not as yet reached its spawning season, and is, therefor, an immature animal

Figs. 1-20 illustrate the growth of the seed oysters caught on small stones. Figs. 1-10 show three-month-old oysters attached to living snails (littorina littorea). Figs. 11-14 show the oysters of the same age attached to small stones. Figs. 15-18 show oysters one and one-half years old attached to small peggles, while Figs. 19-20 show two and one-quarter-year-old oysters attached in the same fashion. Fig.16 gives a peculiar illustration of the method of attachment. The young oyster has formed an attachment to a second pebble towards its free end at some distance from the first, indicating that the mantle, even at the age of one year, retains the power of secreting a fixative.
Oyster seed, mostly two-year olds, attached to the wooden piles and the stones beneath Chequesset Inn wharf, Wellfleet, Mass. The abundance of the natural set on such objects indicates that successful spat collecting can be carried out in this locality. During severe winters the mortality is heavy, owing to the exposure between the tide lines; but these oysters have weathered two ordinary winters.
Herring River, Wellfleet, at low water, showing the shells planted for the capture of seed oysters in 1908 on the gravel bar north of Great Island. The shells and pebbles are covered with spat.
Basket rake covered with fine meshed wire netting, used at New Bedford and Fairhaven in the capture of the small seed quahaugs in the Acushnet River.
Scene along the river front at Fairhaven, showing a quahaug shanty and several skiffs, which are used in raking the small seed quahaugs from the Acushnet River. Owing to the pollution within the restricted area, quahaugs can only be taken from this river for transplanting purposes. Since writing this report, an act was passed in 1911 whereby the city of New Bedford and the town of Fairhaven by a common board govern the taking of quahaugs from this section by licenses and by restrictions as to selling and transplanting
Quahaug farm of Z. A. Howes at Wellfleet. Several hundred bushels of seed quahaugs are planted between the tide lines. The boundaries of the grant are market with stakes, made of slender salpings topped with brush. The man in the foreground is examining the growth of the quahaugs
