Shellfish harvest in Georgia waters back open

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — The Georgia Department of Natural Resources says the harvest of shellfish in state waters is now open.

WSAV-TV reports the harvest was suspended on Tuesday as a precautionary to Hurricane Dorian. It reopened at 6 a.m. Friday.

DNR Commissioner Mark Williams signed an administrative order scheduling the reopening after rainfall amounts and storm surge levels were lower than expected. It allows the reopening of shellfish fisheries including clams and other bivalve mollusks, but does not include the harvest of oysters.

Oyster harvesting will remain prohibited until at least Oct. 1 when water temperatures fall below 81 degrees.
