Citrus county sheriffs office- SCALLOP SEASON COUNTDOWN


SCALLOP SEASON COUNTDOWN – We have 13 days left until the start of the scallop season, July 1st. As promised, CCSO is committed to making the 2020 Scallop Season the safest ever with daily safety tips and trivia.

To kick-off our scallop season safety, can you guess what the daily bag limit is for scallops? If you said 2 gallons of whole bay scallops in a shell, you are correct!

Some laws limit the number of scallops recreational divers can collect. As mentioned, you can collect 2 gallons of whole scallops per person or 1 pint of scallop meat per person.

Per vessel, a maximum of 10 gallons of scallops in their shell or 1/2 gallon of scallop meat is permitted.

Be smart and be safe; know the rules and regulations of scalloping in your area.
