Making the Magic — Lessons Learned from the Rhode Island Shellfish Management Plan (SMP): How do you create a comprehensive plan for state shellfish resources that is not only effective and efficient but reflects the needs of government, industry and community groups? Find out through this new film series.
The SMP is the state’s first comprehensive plan for the management, protection and enhancement of shellfish resources; since plan adoption in 2014, more than 70 percent of SMP recommendations have been, or are being, implemented.

Through it, state agencies, industry, academia and community partners will further efforts to sustainably manage local shellfish stock, promote economic growth and jobs, and celebrate Rhode Island’s unique food cultures.
