Initial applications were made after a lottery was held in May to determine the order of selection. Now that all of the lottery participants have selected their potential lease locations, applications are being accepted by DNREC for the remainder of the available acreage.

Beginning after midnight on December 5th, applications and a required $300 application fee can be sent via certified mail to the Division of Fish & Wildlife, 89 Kings Highway, Dover, DE 19901. No in-person or electronically-delivered applications will be accepted. The order of the applications for selecting lease locations will be determined by their postmarked dates.

Available acres within the state-approved Shellfish Aquaculture Development Areas (SADA) are indicated on the interactive shellfish map, and the SADA application is on the DNREC Shellfish Aquaculture Program webpage.
