Placopecten magellanicus, Deep Sea Scallops, are native to the Atlanic Ocean and range from Labrador to North Carolina. Labrador is located very near New Foundland on the Eastern coast of Canada. They have now become more dispersed throughout this area as a result of farmers introducing them to varying locations in order to breed them for culinary purposes, but the majority remain in the Northern Atlantic Ocean.
Biogeographic Regions: nearctic (Native ); atlantic ocean (Native )
