Non-Resident Recreational Shellfish License Lottery

ATTENTION NON-RESIDENT SHELLFISH DIGGERS

For the 2021 shellfish license season, all non-resident recreational shellfish licenses will be issued by LOTTERY DRAWING.


Starting on May 3, 2021, any non-resident of Biddeford may enter into the non-resident shellfish license lottery drawing by going to the City Clerk’s Office and completing an entry card, or by downloading the form linked below and mailing it to: City Clerk’s Office, P.O. Box 586, Biddeford, ME 04005; or emailing the completed application to: carmen.morris@biddefordmaine.org

60 names will be drawn on Friday, May 21, 2021 and folks will be contacted by email/mail if their name is drawn.  Anyone whose name is drawn will have until June 11, 2021 to appear in the City Clerk’s Office, with proper ID, to purchase the non-resident shellfish license. 

Anyone who is selected in the lottery drawing and does not purchase their non-resident shellfish license by the end of day on June 11, 2021 will no longer be able to purchase a license; and another lottery drawing will be held to issue any remaining non-resident shellfish licenses. 

Please contact the City Clerk’s Office at (207) 284-9307 with any questions.  The Clerk’s Office hours are Monday-Friday, 8am-4pm.
