Before sending my missive to David Davies, MP for Monmouth I thought I'd see what the position of the MCS was on the matter and found this: http://www.mcsuk.org.....llop dredging.
It would appear as though there is already regulation in place which pertains to Welsh marine protected areas.

If only it was that simple! In Scotland scallop diving is viable but is under substantial regulation due to health & safety. In many areas though the density of scallops is such that diving for them would not be economic - but dredging can be. Diving for scallops has to be the most effective method of ensuring a nothing else is taken or damaged.
Start picking Your scallops like Norway does...
No bycatch and small scallops are left behind.
