Scallop Season Dates for 2017

Scallop Season Dates for 2017

BAY COUNTY, Fl - The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has approved changes to the Bay Scallop Season dates for Gulf County. The Commission approved a July 25th through September 10th recreational Bay Scallop Season off Gulf County, including all waters in St. Joseph Bay, and those west of St. Vincent Island in Franklin County through Mexico Beach Canal in Bay County. A prolonged Red Tide event in late 2015 negatively impacted the scallop population in St. Joseph Bay, which led to modified local scallop regulations for 2016 that included a shortened season and reduced bag limits.
