SHELLFISH PERMITS

A permit is required for the taking of any shellfish or shellfish predator for any person twelve (12) years or over who is a resident or taxpayer in the Town of East Hampton.

Violators are subject to fines and imprisonment.

There are two (2) types of annual permits:

1) A personal (non-commercial) permit, which entitles the holder to take shellfish or shellfish predators for the sole use of the individual permit holder and their family.

2) A commercial permit, which entitles the holder to take shellfish or shellfish predators for use by others.

No person may hold a commercial and personal permit at any one time.

Permits may be obtained at the Town Clerk's office at 159 Pantigo Lane and permittees will be given a copy of the current East Hampton Town Shellfish Ordinance at that time.
