Area 1652 will close to oyster harvesting at sunset today.
Area 1652 is the conditionally Approved summer north shellfish harvesting area.
It is being closed because of a high fecal coliform count in a recent water sample taken from the area.
Water samples will continue to be taken from the area and tested to see when it is safe to re-open.
Stay tuned to Oyster radio for re-opening information.
