Crab season delayed due to toxin

The earliest commercial fishermen can harvest crab will be mid-December.

The traditional Dec. 1 commercial crab season has been delayed for the entire Oregon Coast due to above average levels of domoic acid, a toxin that can be fatal, found in Dungeness crab off certain parts of the coast, a state agency announced.

The earliest that commercial fisherman can harvest crab is mid-December — but only if future test results say the crab is safe for human consumption.


Donation: Sheriff’s office gets new ATVs

Dave and Bob Snazuk, owners of Harbor’s Best Western Beachfront Inn, have donated two new, fully-equipped all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) to the Curry County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue department.

The vehicles, 2016 Honda Foreman ATVs, and additional equipment are valued at more than $16,000. They will be useful to the SAR team in searching for lost or injured people in difficult or otherwise inaccessible terrain. 

The Snazuk family has made repeated donations to the Search and Rescue team over the past 20 years.
