The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) announce the opening of mussel harvesting on the south Oregon coast.
The entire Oregon coast is now open for recreational and commercial mussel harvesting. Recent samples taken from the area indicate the marine biotoxin paralytic shellfish poison has dropped below the closure limit.
Recreational and commercial razor clam harvesting is closed along the entire Oregon coast for elevated levels of the marine biotoxin domoic acid.
Bay clams and crab are open for recreational harvesters along the entire Oregon coast. Contact ODFW for recreational license requirements, permits and rules.
