The Washington Department of Health labs indicate domoic acid levels at Long Beach and Twin Harbors beaches remain slightly above the health guideline levels and are closed to razor clam digging. WDFW will announce future digging opportunities on those beaches when marine toxin tests show it is safe to do so.
Domoic acid, a natural toxin produced by certain types of marine algae, can be harmful or fatal if consumed in sufficient quantities.
More information about domoic acid, as well as current levels at ocean beaches, can be found on WDFW’s domoic acid webpage.
For additional details, go to the WDFW’s razor clam webpage and the DOH webpage. To be notified of in-season rule changes as they are announced sign up for email notifications at wdfw.wa.gov/about/lists.
