Inland Bays’ interactive shellfish aquaculture map to be updated May 10

The logo for the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental ControlDOVER – DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife announced today that acreage will be made available for Inland Bays’ shellfish aquaculture lease starting later this month. Some acreage previously classified as “Pending” on the interactive Shellfish Aquaculture Development Area map will be updated starting May 10 to “Available.” This change comes after DNREC did not receive complete applications for these acres by a one-year deadline set by the Department that expired May 2.

DNREC will update the interactive shellfish aquaculture map – also accessible via the Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Inland Bays Shellfish Aquaculture webpage – to reflect the acres that have been returned to the catalog of acreage available for lease. For acres marked “available” on the updated interactive shellfish map, the Division of Fish & Wildlife will accept new lease applications on a first-come, first-served basis.

In order to apply for available acreage, applicants must submit a complete application and a $300 application fee to the Division of Fish & Wildlife. Visit the Inland Bays Shellfish Aquaculture webpage for the application and for additional information. Interested applicants can also contact Zina Hense at (302) 735-2960 for more details.
