Concerned Long Islander November 19, 2012 at 12:48 AM
Now I'm confused...I just read a Nov. 3 "Patch" item that said there is no harvesting of shellfish on the whole of Long Island. This is dated Nov. 17. I "get" the storm and contamination issue...but why the article about harvesting in-shell scallops being available, if they're not??? Surely, the waters haven't been cleaned-up yet!
