Safe Seafood for Glynn County
As Glynn County is a fishing community, guidelines for the safe consumption of our oceans’ harvest are in the public health interest of everyone. Knowledge of safe harvestable species and locations of safe harvesting areas is essential to the health of our families and the maintenance of a healthy commercial fishing industry. Since 1998, the Glynn Environmental Coalition has served as a resource for providing this vital information to our community. See all the resources distributed by this program below.
Goal: Raise awareness for the seafood consumption advisories in Glynn County and mitigate health risks, especially for women and children, associated over-consumption of contaminated seafood.
