GULF OF MEXICO — Mississippi is opening a limited oyster season at sunrise Nov. 5 in some areas along the Gulf Coast.
The season ends at 4 p.m. Dec. 29, unless the head of the Department of Marine Resources decides to extend it.
Many areas that are open during the season are near Pass Christian and Waveland.
The department says harvest is limited to three sacks of oysters per week for anyone with a recreational license.
For commercial harvest, the initial limit is 12 sacks per day for each tonging vessel and 20 sacks per day for each oyster dredging vessel.
