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

**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.
