The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) announced that a portion of the coast has opened for razor clamming as domoic acid levels have fallen below the closure limit.
Recreational razor clamming is now open from Tillamook Head to Cape Arago. Recreational razor clamming is closed for the ODFW annual conservation closure from the Columbia River to Tillamook Head. This closure is not related to biotoxins. Recreational razor clamming is also closed . . .
