Razor clamming now open from the Yachats River to the Umpqua River

Thursday, May 24, 2018

SALEM, Ore. - The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) announce the reopening of razor clamming from the mouth of the Yachats River to the north jetty of the Umpqua River as domoic acid levels have dropped below the closure limit.

This opening means razor clamming is now open from the Columbia River to Cape Arago, which is located south of Coos Bay (see attached map).

The harvesting of razor clams remains closed for elevated levels of domoic acid toxin from Cape Arago to the California border. This includes all beaches and all bays.

ODA will continue to test for shellfish toxins every other week, as tides permit. Reopening of an area requires two consecutive tests in the safe range.

For more information please call ODA's shellfish safety information hotline at (800) 448-2474 or visit the ODA shellfish closures webpage.
