Shellfishing Licenses

Anyone of the age of 13 or more must have a license to shellfish.

Beginning on April 1, 2019 the Town Clerk’s office assists the Shellfish Commission with the sale of shellfishing licenses.

100% of the fees collected are used to support shellfishing programs in Clinton. 

Property owners can obtain a Resident license with proof of ownership. 

Senior and Military discounts require proof in the form of an ID.

Non Resident Daily licenses are good from dusk to dawn on the day that the license is issued for and cannot be issued more than a week in advanced. 

Licenses can only be issued to the individual; they cannot be purchased for someone else.
