Fisherman's Island Shellfish Harvesting Closed

Posted: Updated:

Shellfish harvesting is closed on Fisherman's Island until July 2014.

The Virginia Department of Health says the closure is due to three cases of illness after people ate oysters from the area.

The closure only affects oysters and clams... Not fin fish or crabs.

The department will monitor the shellfish to see if harvesting can start back any sooner.
