Expanding and Sustaining Shellfisheries of Casco Bay 2011


This study collected current information on the location of shellfish area closures, known or suspected anthropogenic sources of bacterial contamination, and local opinion of resource value to prioritize and inform bacterial pollution control efforts around Casco Bay. The project team determined that many of the mudflats viewed by diggers as having the highest value for harvest were closed due to 'non-point source pollution' - hard to trace pollution from residential and street stormwater runoff, agricultural lands, and septic systems. The 2011 effort builds on previous CBEP studies in 1999 and 2003.
