All shellfish grounds are subject to closure after heavy rainfall or pollution spills. SCDHEC announces such closures in your local newspaper and on the shellfish hotline 1-800-285-1618. The SCDHEC management areas are outlined in blue. Additional information on SCDHEC shellfish ground classifications may be found at http://www.scdhec.gov/shellfish/.
