Applicants who purchased a Commercial Shellfish license in the previous year are considered grandfathered and may apply for early renewal in the 5 business days preceding the sale date.

There will be a lottery held on the first business day after September 1 for any unsold licenses - Commercial & Recreational.  Applicants must be present to qualify.
