Mattapoisett Aquaculture Permit Revoked

SouthCoast Today: Citing various violations and concerns, selectmen revoked the shellfish farm license Taylor Cultured Seafoods, Inc. had owned on 100 acres in Mattapoisett Harbor since 1988.

Before approving the action Tuesday night [April 10], the board explained the company had decided to “voluntarily surrender” its long-held town aquaculture permit in a hearing on March 27 over its non-compliance with permit regulations. But the company has yet to return to the board with more details on that decision or on efforts to fix their violations.
