The changes in adductor muscle and gonad tissue weights, and corresponding changes in RNA/DNA ratios, were analyzed during artificial conditioning of the sea scallop (Placopecten magellanicus) at two locations. The scallops took approximately 95 days to condition and spawn from a spent state. In contrast to wild populations, the adductor muscle weight did not decline significantly during gametogenesis.
