Stay tuned to this page to learn about Barnstable Harbor Shellfishing.  Friends of Barnstable will be working to accumulate data on shellfishing in Barnstable Harbor.  We will use this area of our website as “one-stop-shopping” to report data collected from various agencies regarding both recreational and commercial shellfishing concerns.  Visit us often and watch us grow, perhaps not as fast as an oyster seed.
