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. Eelgrass is important habitat for many commercial and non-commercial marine species but its location varies from year to year. 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
