A true sign of autumn on Nantucket! Time to check your waders and scalloping gear and go catch some of the tasty bivalves! Beginning on October 1st the long-cherished tradition of recreational scalloping begins (and is permitted Wednesday through Sunday). The commercial bay scalloping season begins on November 1, and both run until March 31, 2022. A license is required for each and can be obtained from the licensing office at the Public Safety Facility on Fairgrounds Road.
