After months of waiting today begins the first day of oyster season along the South Carolina coast.

Oyster season usually runs from September to April and can be easily remembered because oysters are only in season during months with the letter “r” in them.

It’s also important to remember that recreational harvesters must have a Saltwater Recreational Fishing License from the state and should also obtain an updated map found at http://www.dnr.sc.gov/marine/shellfish/shellfishmaps.
