The Town of Brunswick has unique shellfish management program. The Town of Brunswick has over 1,600 acres of intertidal shellfish growing area along its 61 miles of coastline. The town currently licenses 50 commercial shellfish harvesters and many recreational harvesters. License numbers are determined by conducting shellfish inventory surveys every other year. Licensed harvesters are vested into the program and must accumulate conservation hours annually to remain eligible to retain their license the following year.

The Brunswick Marine Resource Committee along with the Marine Resource Officer conduct various enhancement, propagation, protection, and mitigation efforts each year. The Brunswick Marine Resource Committee meets the first Wednesday of each month.
