Razor clams closed

OLYMPIA — After recent test results, the Washington’s Department of Health has determined razor clams contain increasing levels of domoic acid. As a result, state health officials and shellfish managers closed Washington’s ocean beaches to razor clam digging.

All beaches in the state are closed to razor clam digging effective immediately.

“State shellfish managers will consider openings tentatively scheduled to start Oct. 31, depending on the results of upcoming marine toxin tests and public health officials’ ongoing monitoring of COVID-19 trends,” said Larry Phillips, WDFW’s coastal region director.

The department will make an announcement later this week on additional digs.

Domoic acid, a natural toxin produced by certain types of marine algae, can be harmful or even fatal if consumed in sufficient quantities.
