For four generations, the Wells name has been synonymous with freshness and quality. The family-owned business, Wells Ice and Cold Storage, enjoys an excellent reputation in the scallop industry.

Captain Wells' father started in the seafood business in the 1920’s, and the Wells family has been involved in the fishing industry for four generations. Bills Wells, Jr., founded Wells Scallop Company in 1979 with his flaghip vessel, the F/V Carolina Queen. Later in the same year, Wells and his partner, V.J. O'Neal, moved to Seaford, Virginia, and formed the Seaford Scallop Company. The company grew quickly and by 1982, operated eighteen vessels and was known as one of the largest scallop fleet operators on the East Coast.

In 1988, Mr. Wells and his son, Bill Wells III, formed Wells Ice and Cold Storage and began processing scallops themselves at a new facility in Seaford. Mr. Wells also bought out his partner and sold a portion of his fleet to eight independent contractors who continue to sell their catch to Capt. Wells. There are currently four vessels producing frozen-at-sea scallops and nine "wet" (fresh scallop) boats offloading at the Wells' facility.

 

Capt. Wells BrandTM Scallops are tender with a sweet, nut-like flavor and are available year round, being abundant in the deep waters of the Atlantic off the coast of Virginia and the northern and mid-Atlantic states. Consistent supply means that you can offer scallops on your menu with confidence.

US Atlantic Scallops Boat Prices

With scallops sizes being smaller this year, this will keep U/10’s at a Premium but lower prices on smaller sizes. Overall we continue to see a continued lack of imports which will reduce total supply. Looking ahead, expected increase in 2017 harvest will keep year end prices in check.
