Partial razor clam closure due to elevated domoic acid

Friday, June 15, 2018

The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) announce a portion of the coast is closed for razor clamming as domoic acid levels have risen above the closure limit.

Razor clamming is now closed from Cascade Head to the north jetty of the Umpqua River and closed from Cape Arago to the California border. This includes all beaches and all bays. 

Razor clamming remains open from the Columbia River to Cascade Head and open 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. 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 web page,
