Stir in garlic, bay leaves, thyme, sage, salt and pepper, and cook another minute to release flavor. Stir in tomatoes and vegetable stock, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer about 7 minutes. Increase heat slightly, stir in fish and cook about 1 minute. Stir in scallops and mussels or clams.
