Razor Clamming Closure

The closure follows testing that shows elevated domoic acid levels in the clams.

The Oregon Department of Agriculture and the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Department have closed recreational harvesting of razor clams along the entire Oregon coastline from the Columbia River to the California border.

The closure includes harvesting along all beaches and in all bays. The closure follows testing that shows elevated domoic acid levels in the clams. 

Phytoplankton blooms in the ocean cause the domoic acid producing toxin in the clams. Humans who consumer the contaminated clams can become sick and suffer short term memory loss. 

Mussels 

The recreational harvesting of mussels is also closed from the south jetty of the Coquille River (at Bandon) to the California border. This includes all beaches, bays, rocks, piers, docks, etc. the entire Oregon Coast from the Columbia River to the California border.
