Bivalve shellfish

Bivalve shellfish (and snails)

Before harvesting bivalve shellfish from this area learn about when and where you can harvest. You’re responsible for understanding the restrictions that may affect an open fishery.

Step 1: marine biotoxin and sanitary contamination closures

  • Check for contamination in the subarea where you plan to harvest.

Bivalve shellfish have two hinged shells. Because they feed by filtering microscopic plankton from the water, changes in water quality can cause unsafe marine biotoxins, bacteria, or viruses to build up in their tissue. Snails can also accumulate toxins and pollutants.

Step 2: species regulations and restrictions

Area closures indicate regular restrictions or closures related to a protected area (sponge reef closure, MPA, RCA). The glossary explains all terms used to describe restrictions.

Bivalve shellfish contamination

The contamination table displays current closures only. A full list of seasonal sanitary closures for this area is available.
