Shellfish Sanitation and Management 


The Bureau of Public Health oversees the application of the National Shellfish Sanitation Program (NSSP) within the State of Maine. This program is implemented internationally by the Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference (ISSC) in order to keep molluscan shellfish safe for human consumption.  This is accomplished by making sure that a common set of standards are used to classify shellfish growing areas and handle shellfish when they go to market.
