I’m interested in getting a commercial shellfishing license. Can you tell me about that?

Commercial shellfishing licenses may be applied for by Duxbury residents in April only each year.  Applications are available from the Board of Selectmen’s Office in April.  The application process does require: (a) the completed Commercial Shellfish License Application, (b) proof of residency (i.e., property tax bill and/or Domicile/Lease Verification Affidavit) (c) Driver’s License (or Student ID, if no Driver’s License), (d)  a copy of a valid Massachusetts (State) Commercial Fisherman permit endorsed for shellfishing.
