Scallopalooza is an annual fundraiser for scallop restoration by Sarasota Bay Watch. This fun-filled event is sold out every year and hosted by the Sarasota Yacht Club. Each year the funds raised at the event pay for multiple scallop releases throughout the subsequent year, thereby sustaining our scallop restoration initiative and increases our chances for success.

Scallop restoration is a core program of Sarasota Bay Watch. The scallop population in Sarasota Bay has been drastically reduced over the years. Florida Fish and Wildlife experts believe that by raising scallops in shellfish hatcheries and releasing the larvae into our local seagrass beds that a multi-year release program could result in a self-perpetuating local population.

To maintain its vigorous level of restoration Sarasota Bay Watch needs funds to raise the clams and scallops that replenish natural populations in our local waters. Please, help us by supporting Scallopalooza, It’s Clamtastic!
