Shell Fish - Clams

The direct harvest of shellfish from Manhasset Bay has been prohibited by the State since the early 1970s due to the bacterial levels in the Bay exceeding the State’s water quality standards for shellfishing. Degraded bacterial water quality in the Bay has existed since the 1920s and has been attributed in large part to increased development. Indications from the DEC are that it is unlikely to allow harvesting in the near future, because of excessive levels of coliform, particularly after rainfall.
