Another shellfish bed damaged by Superstorm Sandy has reopened in New Jersey’s Barnegat Bay.

The state’s Environmental Protection Department reopened beds in the Little Egg Harbor section at sunrise Friday. The DEP is planning to open all of the beds in the Raritan Bay on Monday.

The plans are part of an administrative order signed by DEP Commissioner Bob Martin in November that reopened beds from Little Egg Inlet south to Cape May Point.

The beds had been closed since Oct. 29 because of concerns over water quality caused by Superstorm Sandy.

All of New Jersey’s shellfish beds that closed as a result of Sandy will now return to pre-storm classifications.
