Our Shell & Fossil Collection Policy

We follow all Florida rules and regulations when it comes to the collection of seashells, fossils, shark teeth and anything else we sell on this site.

We Do Not Collect Live Animals

Per the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the collection of most live animals is permitted with a valid saltwater fishing license. You can read their policy here.

However, in the interest of preservation, we absolutely WILL NOT collect live specimens. Period.

We Do Not Collect Artifacts

Per Florida law, the collection of any item modified by humans and over 50 years of age is considered property of the state if collected on state/public lands. That being the case, we won't collect anything that appears as though it may fit this criteria. Full Florida policy is here.
