Razor clams

Elevated levels of domoic acid were found in razor clams.

Razor clamming will reopen on the popular Clatsop beaches between Warrenton and Seaside on Friday.

The area was closed to clamming for an annual conservation closure during the summer, but has not been open to clammers since last October. High levels of domoic acid shut down digging last year and kept the area closed through the spring.

Clammers will be allowed a daily harvest limit of the first 15 razor clams dug, regardless of size or condition. Razor clam harvesting in Oregon opened elsewhere on the coast last week, from the California border to Tillamook Head south of Seaside.
