Partial Razor Clam Reopening

The Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife announce a new shellfish opening.

Razor clam harvesting has re-opened on the north and central coast. Levels of the marine biotoxin paralytic shellfish poison (PSP) have continued to test below the closure limit. Razor clam harvesting is open from the Washington border to the Yachats River.

Razor clam harvesting is closed from the Yachats River to the California border. Mussel and bay clam harvesting remains closed along the entire Oregon coast.

Crab harvesting is open along the entire Oregon coast including bays and estuaries.

Oregon Department of Agriculture will continue to test for shellfish toxins weekly, as tides and weather permit. Reopening an area closed for biotoxins requires two consecutive tests with results below the closure limit. Contact Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife for recreational license requirements, permits, rules and limits.
