Shading denotes SCDHEC harvest classifications based on water quality. It is not safe to consume shellfish from areas shaded red or orange. All shellfish grounds are subject to closure after heavy rainfall or pollution spills. SCDHEC announces such closures in your local newspaper and on the shellfish hotline 1-800-285-1618. The SCDHEC management areas are outlined in blue. Additional information on SCDHEC shellfish ground classifications may be found at http://www.scdhec.gov/shellfish/.
