The New Shoreham Town Council will hold a Public Hearing to consider amending New Shoreham’s Revised Ordinances by adopting a new subsection (e) in Chapter 9 “Marine Activities, Areas and Structures” Section 143 “Method and time of taking shellfish”
as follows:
Sec. 9-143 – Method and time of taking shellfish
(e) Shellfish Gauge  No person shall take shellfish, or attempt to take shellfish, without having a shellfish gauge to measure shellfish to ensure that those specimens not meeting a minimum size limit stated in this chapter may be returned promptly to town waters.  Any person taking or attempting to take shellfish shall have on or in the immediate vicinity of his/her person such required shellfish gauge, and shall present the shellfish gauge upon the request of any shellfish warden, Harbors department employee or police officer of the town.   A shellfish gauge will be issued by the Harbors Department upon issuance or renewal of a shellfish license; otherwise a shellfish gauge is available from the Harbors Department for a fee of $2.00.  The shellfish gauge required in this section must be substantially similar to the shellfish gauge issued by the Harbors Department.
