Area 1612 of the Apalachicola Bay temporarily closing to oyster harvesting at sunset today

The Department of Agriculture will close oyster harvesting area 1612 at sunset today.

Area 1612 is the conditionally approved Winter West Shellfish Harvest Area – it includes the Green Point Bar.

The area was closed because of heavy rains over the past few days.

The area will be reopened when sampling shows the water quality is acceptable for harvesting.
