What our supporters are saying
Wellfleet Shellfishermen's Association is fighting to maintain public, municipal control over the largest oyster beds in Massachusetts. If you love Wellfleet or Wellfleet oysters, please take this seriously!!
A single and clear message, that the town of Wellfleet continues to manage it's natural resources through Home Rule. a long, storied and successful tradition.
that as far as shellfishing goes, the three hundred plus fisherfolk in town know what is best. and have done so for 200 years.
I support the shellfishermen of Wellfleet who have been forced to fight to preserve their way of life.
