The culture of scallops in Japan has a history of about 60 years. A major change was spat collection using an onion bag, which was invented by a fisherman in the 1960s and greatly changed the fishery production of scallops not only in Japan but the world. I will describe the general history of the scallop fishery in Japan and research that has supported the fishery and scallop culture.
