Protest the Closing of the Shellfishing Beds

On Monday, November 1, 2021, more than 50 people turned out for the NSRWA Recreational Shellfish Harvesting Sit-In. It was a beautiful day at Driftway Conservation Park in Scituate. November 1st is typically the opening day for the 606 acres of shellfish beds in the North and South Rivers to be opened for recreational harvest, but this year for the second year in a row, the shellfish beds were not opened. NSRWA Executive Director Samantha Woods spoke about the organization’s efforts to reopen the shellfish beds on the North and South Rivers to recreational shellfish harvesting. Brad White and David Dauphinee spoke on the history and tradition of shellfishing, and their memories of doing it with their families. Representative Patrick Kearney attended the event and spoke of his support for the reopening to recreational harvest.
