A Scallop Workshop was held in Baltimore, Ireland from 11th-16th May 1976, organised by the Fisheries Division of the Irish Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. Biologists from a number of different countries attended to read papers and to discuss certain topics. The titles of the papers and discussion topics, together with a list of participants, are given in sections 3-5. Scallop shells brought by the participants were aged, and distribution maps of scallops and scallop fisheries were made. A field trip was made to nearby Lough Hyne (Ine), where research into the cultivation of escallops is being conducted by the Fisheries Division.
