2016-17 Scallop Season Targeted Closures

Several areas are closed this season as they either required rebuilding, contain spat-producing scallops or sublegal scallops. The Muscle Ridge Limited Closure will be open for harvest two days per week only with Mondays and Tuesdays open for draggers and TWednesdays and Fridays for divers starting in December 2016. For all other Targeted Closures, fishing is prohibited this season.
