East Bay Shellfish Harvest Area Closed

As of sunset Sunday night, the East Bay Shellfish Harvest Area is closed in Bay County.

The Florida Department of agriculture is prohibiting the harvest of oysters, clams, and mussels in that location due to a change in bacteria levels in the water.

Fishermen can continue to harvest scallops, shrimp, or crabs.
Water samples will continue to be collected and analyzed until results allow the area to reopen.
