DENNIS IS CLOSED TO THE TAKING OF MOST SHELLFISH
The Division of Marine Fisheries has determined that shellfish areas in the Town of Dennis  no longer meet the requirements for an open status due to unacceptable water quality resulting from extremely heavy rain fall.  Therefore, under authority of Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 130, sections 74A and 75, effective today, October 26, 2017, Dennis shellfishing areas have been placed in a "CLOSED TO SHELLFISHING" status to the taking of most shellfish for Recreational and Commerical permit holders. The harvesting of Scallops still remains open. These areas shall remain closed until notification has been received from the Division that the areas have been placed into an open status. Thank you.
