Shellfish Dealer



Certification as a Shellfish Dealer

Certification as a shellfish dealer is required to conduct processing of bivalve shellfish.  Bivalve shellfish include oysters, clams, mussels, and scallops, which may be live (shellstock), shucked, frozen, in-shell product, etc. (except shucked scallops consisting of the adductor muscle only, which do not require a shellfish dealer certification).  Here, “processing” of bivalve shellfish includes but is not limited to the following activities:

  • Receiving shellfish from harvesters/aquaculturists/growers
  • Wholesaling shellfish
  • Shucking and packing shellfish
  • Repacking shucked shellfish into containers other than the original container
  • Wet storage of shellfish
  • Depuration of shellfish
