Portion of the coast closes for mussel harvesting

Friday, August 31, 2018

SALEM, Ore.—The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and ODFW announce a portion of the coast has closed for recreational mussel harvesting due to elevated levels of domoic acid.

Recreational mussel harvesting is closed from the south jetty of the Coquille River to the California border. Recreational mussel harvesting remains open from the Columbia River to the south jetty of the Coquille River.

Recreational razor clam harvesting is open from Tillamook Head to the south jetty of the Coquille River. Razor clamming is closed north of Tillamook Head on all Clatsop County beaches (as part of annual conservation closure July 15-Sept. 30 each year) and from the south jetty of the Coquille River to the California border.

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

For more information call the ODA Shellfish Safety Hotline at (800) 448-2474. Closures are also noted on ODA’s Recreation Shellfish page and on ODFW’s Recreation Report - Clamming and Crabbing Report.
