COASTAL GENERAL PERMIT 36 – for the placement of shell within shellfish lease areas.

The Coastal General Permit 36 authorizes the placement of shell in an area with a valid shellfish lease.  This permit does not authorize stockpiling of shell or dredging activities.  The particulars of this general permit include:   

  • The shell to be planted is processed oyster, surf clam and/or ocean quahog shell or other shell approved by the Department.
  • The height of the shell material placed is not greater than 6 inches above the substrate.
  • The placement of shell does not pose a hazard to navigation.
  • All shell is clean and free of contaminants.

You can read the full details in the rule at N.J.A.C.7:7-7.36.

If your project does not meet the requirements or limitations of Coastal General Permit 36, it may qualify for a permit-by-rule, other general permit, or a Waterfront Development Individual Permit.  Please review those tabs under Coastal Permitting for additional information.
