To shellfish in Sandwich waters you will need to purchase a Sandwich shellfish license from the Town Offices located at 16 Jan Setbastian Drive, in the Sandwich Industrial Park. The office will provide additional information regarding shellfish regulations, maps, a legal shellfish gauge, etc.
Reminder: If you obtained a shellfish license the year prior to your current application you must present your previous year's Catch Report when applying for a current shellfish license, per the Town of Sandwich Shellfish Regulations. The Catch Report is located on the bottom of the license.
Sandwich residents are eligible to shellfish in the coastal waters of the Town of Bourne; however, you must purchase a separate license at the Bourne Town Hall in the Natural Resources Office. With proof of Sandwich Residency you may purchase a Bourne Shellfishing License at the Bourne Resident’s fee.
