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.”
