New Islip Town rules limit daily shellfish harvesting
New regulations capping the number of permits for shellfish harvesting in the Great South Bay went into effect Monday in the Town of Islip.
In addition to capping at 50 the number of commercial permits issued annually, Islip Town officials are also establishing a 100 shellfish limit per day for personal permit holders. Additionally, a discounted permit rate has been extended to military members.
