The Shellfish Harvesting Status Map will allow you to identify BC shellfish harvesting closures in your area.

This map is designed to help users determine if a location is open or closed to shellfish harvesting due to contamination or for sanitary reasons.

On the map, you can click any subarea or closure polygon to get detailed information about the harvesting closure status. To learn about how to use the map, see the right side panel for complete instructions. The map also features a shellfish dictionary (click the book icon on the lower right cornerof the map). 

For details about the biotoxin and sanitary status of the area, see the Bivalve shellfish contamination closures page of Fisheries & Oceans Canada, the authoritative source for this information.
