Vibrio Simplified for Aquaculture Products: Decision Tree for Growers/Dealers/Enhanced Retail Seafood License Holders

As of 2024, oyster harvesting in all of Maine’s territorial waters are required to meet Vibrio Control Regulations per Chapter 115, from June 1st to October 15th. These regulations apply to all oyster and hardshell clam harvesting, wild or farmed. You can view the full vibrio regulation guidelines and training information here.

We created a vibrio decision tree for aquaculture products to make the steps of achieving vibrio compliance easy to follow. Please note that resubmergence is ONLY allowed on an aquaculture lease site, and this decision tree is meant to be utilized only for aquaculture products.
