STONINGTON — Due to Sunday’s rainfall, the Stonington Shellfish Commission has closed three conditional shellfishing areas in the community.
Commission Chairman Donald L. Murphy said in a press release that the rain led officials to close Area A, Area B and Outer Quiambaug Cove. These areas will remain closed to the harvesting of clams, oysters, and mussels for a minimum of seven days.
To determine the status of the shellfishing areas, call the Stonington Shellfish Commission's information line at 860-599-7575.
