The purpose of the Shellfish Conservation Commission is to establish a shellfish conservation program for the town of Scarborough which will ensure the protection and sustainable management of shellfish resources. These goals will be achieved by means which may include licensing, limiting the number of shellfish harvesters, restricting the time and area where digging is permitted, limiting the size of clams taken, and limiting the number of clams taken daily by a harvester.
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
To be in compliance with DMR, the following changes are now in effect:
Non-Resident Recreational Licenses  and the 65 and Over Non-Resident Licenses  will be issued on a first come, first serve basis, starting on Monday, April 8, 2024.
10 Non-Resident Day Passes will be available - the cost is $20
An applicant may obtain only a day license for up to three (3) consecutive days and must appear in person for each license requested.
We will know on Wednesday, April 3rd if there will be any Commercial Licenses available by Lottery. FMI: 207-730-4020
