Benefits of Membership

Membership awards you access to information on important industry news, a vote on Association business and insight on the latest issues affecting the shellfish industry.  

Some of our accomplishments that benefit our members include:

  • Assisting government agencies in identifying non-point source pollution sources.  As a result, some previously closed shellfish areas have been reopened to harvest
  • Work with SCDNR and SCDHEC on permitting and regulatory issues
  • Developed and shared new shellfish culture methods through cooperative research
  •  Sharing information with members on industry and government programs such as seed availability, crop insurance, and marketing programs.
  • Partnering with agencies to offer workshops and technical training opportunities.
