New NH law passed to sustain shellfish restoration in Great Bay

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — Gov. Maggie Hassan has signed into law a bill that would allow the Fish and Game Department the closing of clam, oyster and other bivalve area for restoration efforts in the Great Bay.

Hassan said Monday the measure will help ensure the sustainability of shellfish restoration projects and the ecological and water-quality benefits they provide.

The measure requires any such closure be preceded by a public hearing, be limited to 50 acres, and be for a period of not more than five years.
