PORT ST. JOE, Fla. (AP) -- Scallop season is under way along Florida's eastern Panhandle.
Tourism leaders in the Port St. Joe area say the recreational scallop season provides a crucial summer tourism boost.
Commercial scallop harvesting from the region's shallow-water bays has been banned since the 1990s, but recreational harvesters can wade into the water and collect up to two gallons a day.
Boating into the bays and snorkeling is another popular way to collect the scallops.
