Conditionally approved summer south area of the Apalachicola bay closing to oyster harvesting

                Area 1662 of the Apalachicola Bay will close to oyster harvesting at sunset today.

Area 1662 is the conditionally approved summer south area of the bay.

The area is being closed because of heavy rains that have crossed our area in recent days.

Biologists will continue to sample the area and reopen it as soon as possible.

Stay tuned to Oyster Radio for reopening information.
