2023 Shellfish Permit Information

Annual 2023 shellfish permits will be available for purchase starting January 17, 2023.

Shellfish permits will be available online at https://brewsterstickers.townhall247.com year-round, and in-person at the Select Board Office in the off-season. During permit season (April 1st-September 15th) all permits can only be purchased through the mail-in program or online. For questions about permits, please call the Select Board Office at 508-896-3701 X1100.

2023 Permit Fees:

  • Resident Annual Permit: $40
  • Non-Resident Annual Permit: $140
  • MA Veteran Annual Permit: $40
  • 70+ Resident Annual Permit: $15*
  • 70+ MA Veteran Annual Permit: $15*

*The Town of Brewster runs a very popular and robust stocking and shellfish program. Due to greater demand and costs, shellfish permit fees were increased for the 2023 season. In addition, residents and MA veterans aged 70 years and above will now be required to purchase an annual permit. These new annual permits will assist in tracking the number of times a permit has been used in a given season and in covering the operating expenses of our shellfish program.  They can be purchased at the Council on Aging or online, year-round. Previously issued Lifetime Senior Shellfish Permits will no longer be valid. Please remember that only one permit per household can be issued.
