Razor clamming re-closes from the Yachats River to the north Jetty of the Umpqua River

Friday, June 01, 2018

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

The harvesting of razor clams is now closed for elevated levels of domoic acid frombthe Yachats River to the north jetty of the Umpqua River and from Cape Arago to the California border. This includes all beaches and all bays.

Razor clamming remains open from the Columbia River to the Yachats River and from the south jetty of the Umpqua River to Cape Arago.

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

For more information please call ODA’s shellfish safety information hotline atb(800) 448-2474 or visit the ODA shellfish closures web page.
