Maine Shellfish Dealer Certification and Inspection Program
John Fendl, Dealer Inspection Program Supervisor
The Maine Shellfish Dealer Certification and Inspection Program uses the standards outlined by the National Shellfish Sanitation Program (NSSP) to evaluate and certify all wholesale shellfish dealers in Maine. These dealers must be certified under the NSSP to ship, or process shellfish for shipment, within and outside of the state of Maine. By making sure that wholesale shellfish dealers meet these standards, the safety and wholesomeness of the shellfish being purchased by consumers is ensured.
This program is guided by the NSSP standards. Please select this link to find the 2011 NSSP Guide for the Control of Molluscan Shellfish (commonly called the "Model Ordinance").
The Department has posted a summary of shellfish laws and regulations on our website.
