The proposed rule amendments will reclassify shellfish harvesting areas and update the associated maps to protect the health of shellfish consumers and to provide access to renewable shellfish resources. The effect of these amendments is to maximize the amount of shellfish harvesting waters available and to maximize the times those waters will be in the open status while continuing to protect public health. The terminal sale date will be replaced with “Sell By” date to make the rules consistent with the rest of 5L-1. The record retention for fresh product will be revised to be consistent with the 2017 model ordinance.
