Marine Fisheries Topics



New commercial shellfish tagging and handling requirements were adopted in June 2011 for Narragansett Bay, Winnipaug Pond, Quonochontaug Pond, Ninigret Pond, Point Judith Pond, and Great Salt Pond.

The following "RI Shellfish Harvest Area Tagging Maps" reflect the new zones that must be identified on the tags.

Text detailing these requirements can be found on page 22, Part 4.31 - Tagging of Shellfish of the RI Marine Regulations

(Note: These maps should not be confused with pollution closure maps)
