Resources For Growers
The ECSGA represents over 1500 shellfish farmers from Maine to Florida.
The primary goal of the Shellfish Sanitation Program is to ensure that shellfish and the areas from which they are harvested meet the health and environmental quality standards provided by federal guidelines and state regulations.
This site provides information about shellfish farming and related activities for the general public, growers, and others involved in the shellfish industry.
The National Shellfish Sanitation Program is the federal/state cooperative program recognized by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration and the Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference for the sanitary control of shellfish produced and sold for human consumption.
