No-harvest areas for mussel dragging (2012 map in jpg format, 342 kb) — The eelgrass areas plotted on this map are where persistent eelgrass beds are found.

Harvesters are expected to cooperate in its protection by avoiding areas that contain eelgrass.  Link to Chapter 90, pages 2-3, text of mussel dragging restrictions in Taunton Bay - PDF file
