Razor clam season produce highest harvest in over 20 years

May 31, 2013

This year’s razor clam season has come to an end following the final dig on Twin Harbors last weekend. Between October and May, diggers harvested more than five million clams along the coast, the highest number in more than 20 years.

Coastal Shellfish Lead Biologist Dan Ayres said that the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will be conducting an assessment of razor clam populations over the next few months to make recommendations for the 2013-14 season.

That season is expected to get under way sometime in October.
