Area 1652 and 1662 to reopen to oyster harvesting on Monday

 Area 1652 and area 1662 of the Apalachicola Bay will reopen to oyster harvesting at sunrise Monday.
Area 1652 is the conditionally approved summer north shellfish harvesting area; area 1662 is the conditionally approved summer south area.
Both areas of the bay were closed this week after heavy rains crossed our area.
The Department of Agriculture says recent water samples show the waters meet the standards to be reopened for oyster harvesting.
