Oyster Shell for Remote Setting Sales

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources has made a limited quantity of aged shell available to leaseholders to purchase for remote setting operations. The shell may not be used for bottom preparation or bottom stabilization. This shell can be purchased loose or bagged. Up to 2,000 bushels may be purchased by an individual with a lease and a State-approved remote setting system. Shell is available for pickup. Cash, check and major credit cards are accepted (add 3% service fee for credit card purchases). Please call ORP at (410)990-4970 to place an order. Upon finalizing details and receiving payment, ORP will arrange a convenient time for pickup. Depending on the order, pickup locations in Maryland could be in Cambridge, Grasonville, or Piney Point.
