Shellfish & Shorelines Restoration in the Southeast

The Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Legal Program is pleased to announce a new publication- Shellfish Restoration and Alternative Shoreline Protection Policies of the Southeastern United States. This report reviews the current regulatory framework in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina related to shellfish conservation, restoration, and resource management, as well as the use of shellfish for shoreline protection.

The project was funded through a competitive grant award from The Nature Conservancy’s South Carolina Office. The results will be used by The Nature Conservancy to refine coastal strategies. To read the report click here.
