Membership dues are based on your annual sales. Calculate your dues amount by taking 1% of the annual farm-gate value of your shellfish (minimum of $250). Farm-gate is the value received when selling product to a buyer or to a processor for further value-added processing.

Example: You harvest and sell clams directly to a distributor for processing. The distributor pays $100,000. Your dues are 1% of $100,000, or $1,000. (.01 x$100,000 = $1,000)

* Annual farm-gate sales of $ x .01 = $ dues amount (Minimum $250) *

Growers can choose to make one yearly payment OR 4 payments (due Jan, Mar, Jun, Sep). Please choose one:

   1 yearly payment
