2017-2018 Shellfish Season Now Closed
Shellfish harvest will resume in the fall of 2018 after water temperatures have cooled.

Links to shellfish maps below are still active for informational purposes only.


Yeah sorry about that, I'm checking their calendars and I don't see any mention of this year's season yet.

An old salt fish monger told me that the public oyster beds are so UNDER harvested that there could be some sort of "collapse" that could criple the oyster beds for decades.

We generally oyster in Folly River. It's always been the nicest and least harvested beds in my opinion. I've never had a bad haul out of those beds.

The Folly River is the only place we go.Its loaded with good sized oysters! Our son in law from Colorado who is an oyster fiend could not believe you could just go out there and pick them up for free.I told him that both beer and Folly oysters were sure proof that we have a loving creator who wants us to be happy

I agree Captain.Our wonderful SC oysters are best suited for oyster roasts, and who would even consider in other than in at least cool weather.


I went to the big oyster roast shindig at Boone Hall ONCE.As soon as I saw they were serving imported oysters all I could think was WTF!
