SELF IMPOSING A "SEASON"

I have noticed in years past that the quality and longevity of my products suffer in the elevated summer heat. I will be self imposing a season now that the marsh and the water are so hot. I apologize for the inconvenience but I only want to deliver the best, safest, and freshest shellfish. 
Nobody wants half cooked clams or par baked mussels. I am doing this based on the specific area of the marsh I work in and my style of fishing. Thanks for your support and understanding. I’ll see you when the water returns to cooler temperatures. #respectthesea #NC #wildharvest #standards
