Service Description: The DMR Shellfish Growing Area Classification Program classifies shellfish areas based on the results of a shoreline survey and fecal coliform testing. During a shoreline survey, DMR staff look for the presence of pollution sources. Once the information is compiled, each growing is classified as either Approved, Conditionally Approved, Restricted, Conditionally Restricted or Prohibited using standards set by the National Shellfish Sanitation Program (NSSP), a federal/state cooperative program that sets the requirements for all states involved in interstate shellfish harvest and sale. For more information about the classification of shellfish flats, visit This dataset contains the classification for all growing areas within the state of Maine. The boundary lines for each polygon are directly described in the pollution area notices, which can be viewed at projection is NAD 1983 UTM Zone 19N.
