The state Department of Natural Resources said the ban on commercial and recreational harvesting started Friday and continues until October.
Dominic Guadagnoli, the DNR's shellfish program manager, said Vibrio parahaemolyticus (Vp) bacteria is found in filter-feeding shellfish when estuarine water temperatures exceed 81 degrees.
Summer also is spawning season, and the combination of reproduction and warm water makes oyster flesh less desirable.
May through September accounts for less than 2 percent of Georgia's annual harvest. Guadagnoli said commercial oystermen have long been aware of the Vp threat and fully support the closure.
'That was cool' we thought.
We will be having a gear swap two thursdays from now on July 10th.
Ben Lawry will be presenting here July 31st.

The Summer weather pattern is setting in nicely, with some awesome afternoon storms really packing a punch...so no more afternoon programs. Thursday's afternoon storm saw dime size hail and 60mph plus winds, flooding downtown and snarling traffic.
Savannah resident Billy Kitchens says a pine tree fell through the middle of his mobile home while he hid in a closet.
Summer is here, get the family paddling.

Thanks for a SUPER time at Sea Sprouts. :0) We had a great time and the kids took home not only lessons in
kayaking but fun summer memories.
We'll be in touch for more adventures.

Doc Marlay maintained his unbeaten record of Last Place for the Challenge as he was narrowly usurped by Carol, racing for the first time. Proudly sporting her pearl necklace, Carol was more than pleased with her Second to last place finish.
" Darling, when God gives you Lemons, make Long Island Lemonade." she said afterwards.

My wife Diane and I wanted to send along a sincere and hearty thanks for providing us with wonderful afternoon of kayaking off Tybee Island.
You were the perfect guide and made the outing both fun and educational. The afternoon we spent paddling over to Little Tybee and then around the marshes was one of the highlights of our vacation and we eagerly look forward to booking your services the next time we visit the area. Until then we’ve decided to purchase a couple of kayaks of our own and begin exploring the waters here in Ohio and Kentucky. We’ve caught the kayaking bug!
We’ve attached a few pictures from that afternoon, including the one we staged that I promised I would send. J
Also, we purchased a couple of SC&K caps from your website and will definitely recommend your company to everyone we know."

We think she will make a recovery and then come here and hang out with Joey for a period of rehabilitation. She will then be put up for adoption.
