Portion of coast opens for razor clamming

Friday, June 29, 2018

Salem -- The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) announce a portion of the coast has opened for razor clamming as domoic acid levels have fallen below the closure limit.

Razor clamming is now open from the Columbia River to Cape Perpetua and from the south jetty of the Umpqua River to Cape Arago.

The harvesting of razor clams remains closed from Cape Perpetua to the north jetty of the Umpqua River and from Cape Arago to the California border. This includes all beaches and all bays.

Mussels, bay clams and crab are open for recreational harvesting along the entire Oregon Coast. Contact ODFW for recreational licensing requirements, permits and rules.

For more information please call ODA’s shellfish safety information hotline at (800) 448-2474 or visit the ODA shellfish closures web page. http://www.oregon.gov/oda/programs/foodsafety/shellfish/pages/shellfishclosures.aspx.
