Shellfish Relay
*
The north side of Apponagansett Bay (Upper Padanaram Harbor) is seasonally closed from June 1st to November 1st each year by the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries. Within the north side is a one acre site (outlined on the map above) which will remain closed until the fall of 2018. This area, from the Pier at the Arthur F. Dias landing to the band-shell at Apponagansett Point, has been seeded with contaminated quahog stock relayed from the Taunton River.

This one-acre contaminated relay area must not be entered or harvested from when the remaining other north side areas open this fall. The contaminated relay area must remain closed to harvesting until the fall of 2017 by which time these quahogs will have purified themselves of any contaminants and had the opportunity to reproduce in our waters.

State Law prohibits harvesting in a contaminated closed area, making it an arrestable felony for anyone caught in the prohibited area. Enforcement by local authorities and State Environmental Police will be heightened during this specific closure.
