We’ve compiled what we hope will be some useful resources about the King Scallop, Pacific Oyster, Blue Mussel, Soft Shell Clam and the Native Oyster – all the species being studied in the CACHE project. You’ll also find other relevant resources about on organisations, shellfish, molluscs and other related topics.
