Upcoming Digs Depend on Marine Toxin Tests

Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) has just announced in a press release that the next found of proposed razor clam digs beginning Friday, October 28, will depend on a second test for marine toxins.

According to WDFW, rising levels of domoic acid in the razor clams could cause closures of the upcoming digs. That’s bad news for razor clammers eager for good conditions on a weekend since the season opener on October 14 was hit by a severe storm causing many eager razor clammers to stay home.

Be sure to check the Razor Clam Society website for approved dig dates and low tide times, or refer to WDFW’s site.
