According to a Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) press release razor clam digs that were scheduled to begin on Friday, October 28, have been canceled due to high levels of marine toxins in razor clams.
The promising start to the razor clamming season has encountered issues that are unavoidable. For the safety of razor clamming enthusiasts, the State Department of Health has issued the warning to ensure that we are safe.
The next scheduled digs are set to begin on November 12. Let’s hope that the toxin levels drop in the next couple of week. The digs will be confirmed a few days prior to that date.
