Foraging for shellfish in Maine?

sufunsified | May 18, 2009 10:21 AM

Hey all!
I've been entertaining fantasies of digging for shellfish while my family is taking Memorial Day up in Maine (and combining said briny delights with fiddlehead ferns, ramps, rhubarb, and so on and so forth). We'll be staying the Camden-Rockland-Rockport area in a small cabin near the beach.

My questions are:
1) Are there any shellfish to actually look for?
2) Is it legal for non-residents to collect said deliciousness?
3) Where can one obtain a permit for foraging?

Thanks so much in advance!
Hooray for the holidays.
