ALERT: Sewage Spill Closes Razor Clam Beach

Alert: Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife and the Washington State Department of Health have just sent out the following notice.

“The Washington State Department of Health has closed approximately 1,500 feet of shoreline near Seabrook, just south of Pacific Beach, to the recreational and commercial harvest of razor clams. The closure is the result of a sewage spill.  We urge razor clam harvesters to avoid this stretch of beach, as shellfish can retain harmful bacteria and viruses found in sewage. The area will remain closed through February. (see map below)

We advise anyone who harvested in this area on Thursday, February 6th to throw away any remaining clams.”

7 Days of Digs Approved for February

A good solid week of razor clam digging has been approved. Get out there and enjoy the beauty and majesty of the Washington coast and support the local community and businesses while you are there!

Make sure you have a valid clamming license for the 2019-2020 season.

The official press release announcing the approved digs by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is on the agency’s website.

The approved dig was only made available to the public because of the hard work that state shellfish managers put in, plus the watchful eye of the Department of Health that conducts the marine toxin tests to ensure clams are safe to eat.
