Shell Sites?


Trevor

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone here knows of any sites to collect modern day of fossilized shells of good quality. I know near Maryland and along most beaches but does anyone know any sites just known for shells?

Any help would be great! :)

your not gonna find a great variety here in Jersey, but the south end of L.B.I. (Holgate), has the most shells ive ever seen in the state. you should go after a Noreaster...you'll find buckets full!

Lots of barrier islands are possible. Also the beaches probably from Canada to FL if you get out there before anyone else... I do know Fl there are a couple places on gulf coast known for shells.... Jeff

As LP said go after some storms that have kicked up lots of stuff and deposited it on the beach...

Like Jeff said barrier islands are a great place, and the more remote the more bountiful the booty, so to speak.

i'm not sure where to find them where your at but here in south texas you can go where they dredged. look at anysite that has been dredged for ships or channels for boats ect.the deeper the channel the better.look at all spoil islands.
