Kingston Bay back in business as shellfish beds reopen
KINGSTON- Shellfish beds in Kingston Bay are now back in business after a three-week closure, caused by the accidental dumping of 100,000 gallons of incorrectly treated effluent into the bay from a wastewater treatment plant in Plymouth.
According to WickedLocal:Kingston, local fishermen are expecting to be reimbursed for the temporary work stoppage, which left them unable to harvest shellfish beds in Plymouth, Kingston and parts of Duxbury for nearly a month.
Shellfish beds in Kingston have been open since early April this year and shellfishing is allowed between sunup and sundown on every day that begins with either a “T” or an “S.”
Shellfish season ends in Kingston on October 31.
