Clam digging

People dig razor clams by lantern light at Long Beach.

The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and ODFW announced Friday that they are closing the entire Oregon Coast to commercial and recreational razor clamming due to elevated levels of domoic acid, a toxin.

Mussel harvesting is closed from the south jetty of the Coquille River at Bandon to the California border for elevated levels of paralytic shellfish toxin. Mussel harvesting is open from the Columbia River to the north jetty of the Coquille River at Bandon.

Bay clams and crab are open for recreational harvesters along the entire Oregon coast.

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