Data Layer GraphicTitle: "Shellfish Growing Areas" (2009)
Description: The North Carolina (NC) Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Division of Environmental Health (DEH) - Shellfish Sanitation and Recreational Water Quality Section (SS+RWQS) identifies Shellfish Growing Areas (SGA). The SS+RWQS performs water sampling throughout the year to determine the extent of contamination or cleanliness of SGA, and submits recommendations to the Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) to close or open waters for shellfish harvesting. The DMF disseminates a proclamation with the SS+RWQS's recommendation. The SGA contain waters that are permanently closed (prohibited), open (approved), or subject to being opened or closed (conditionally approved - open or conditionally approved - closed).
