Shellfish may be taken by commercial harvesters from areas classified as conditional-closed, restricted, or conditionally restricted when they are removed for transplanting, relay, including seed oyster harvesting, depuration or depletion from prohibited areas under licenses issued by the Department of Agriculture and under supervision of the department and local health agencies having jurisdiction, provided said licensee shall notify the designated local enforcement agency of the intended commencement, probable duration and termination of harvesting within that jurisdiction and shall be limited to quantities as may be established by a shellfish management plan reviewed by the Department of Agriculture and adopted by the local shellfish commission or other local agency having jurisdiction over the shellfish. The issuance of licenses by the Department of Agriculture shall not prohibit any town, city or borough from control of harvesting operations in approved areas or conditionally or temporarily closed areas on the basis of residence, quantity or size of shellfish harvested from specific areas, or time of harvesting, or nullify any state law controlling such operations on the basis of residence, quantity or size of shellfish harvested, or time of harvesting.
