Was diving for scallops at the islands and kept finding little crabs inside. The Internet says they're "pea crabs" and actually parasites. This does not seem to be an issue for human consumption, except that these crabs tend to make the meat in the scallop much smaller.

Are these scallops okay to eat raw with parasitic crabs inside, or, should they be cooked? Anyone have any experience?

Eating them raw would probably mean those pea crabs would still be alive,since their being described as parasites I’d refrain,but that’s just me!
