The 2018 – 2019 season for recreational harvest of shellfish will open October 1, 2018.

Shellfish Grounds may be closed to harvest after storm events or marine spill. Please check with SCDHEC for the latest information on closure status. You can also call the SCDHEC shellfish hotline at 1-800-285-1618 or visit their news releases webpage.

**Shellfish areas from Folly Road north to Charleston Harbor are closed for shellfish harvesting by DHEC due to poor water quality conditions from sewage spill. Areas will reopen when water quality conditions improve. For further information on water quality conditions please contact SCDHEC at 843-953-0150.**
