I believe that this is true for most shellfish. We have a quarantine on shellfish around here (except for abs Smile) from May to October. I've always been told that same "R" deal and that its because the warmer weather of the months without R's in them facilitates bacteria growth in the shallow waters where most of the shellfish live.
