Abstract
    The scallop Chlamys nobilis is abundant in the coastal waters of Binhthuan province (south central Vietnam). Favourable substrata consist of coarse sand, gravel, dead corals, or pebbles at a depth of 7-20 m. Water temperature in this area is relatively low because of upwelling in the summer and cooler water currents in the winter. Main breeding seasons of the scallop are July-August an January-February when the temperature is lowest. The growth parameters of von Bertalanffy equation are L = 93.3 mm and K = 1.43. Scallop production changes considerably among years. It is suggested that this fluctuation depends mainly on the environmental conditions of primarily rainfall, wind regime, and water temperature. A management model is presented.
