Thank you for that interesting essay. I had always imagined (without thinking about it much) that scamels were shellfish, like scallops. Seamells is a much nicer idea.

But I always thought Caliban's diet was meant to be appealing. He is offering a storehouse of treasures. Crabs is surely crab apples. Jays and marmosets may not actually be tasty but they are beautiful and interesting. English hazelnuts are delicious.
